    Hey, I did this on the "cheap". Found all the materials at Big Lots.. hand towel $2, fq $1, jumbo ricrac $2, plus 20% off my entire purchase. :) Now, remember this is the first one that I have made. I was more proud that you couldn't see the stitching on the back than what you can see on the front. Thanks for looking. :)
