    My DGS and his buddies play with their Beyblades tops and carry their arenas around. DGS was taking his in plastic grocery bags. So I appliqued the logo on the front and made it just the right size for the arena. On the inside is a zipped pocket to hold all his Beyblades and parts. You could hear his scream of delight a mile away when he realized what he'd received. Worth every stitch. After all, none of his friends has one like it :!:

    Yes, I made the pocket separately and then sewed it into the edge seam. It flops around a bit, but I wanted him to be able to reach everything inside the pocket.

    thanks

    They are kind of like a top. You know those old fasioned toys that spin. The kids battle with them. It is based on a Japanese anime show.
