    I finally made myself a snap bag. They really are addictive. Made lots of mistakes on this one but the next will go better and faster. Hope you like it. They are so much fun to make.

    Your bag looks great. I have this pattern and just bought the retractable ruler, so I need to get busy.

    Great job. Still have not figured out how these work but have never seen any instructions either.

    Love these bags. I've found that they "snap" better if I use double layers of the metal tape. They make great gifts.

    Here is the site for the designers. I think I read someplace that they donate part of their profits to some project in, I think, Africa.

    Look on the board for this thread: Free pattern for snap bags


    http://tatteredgarden.blogspot.com/2...-tutorial.html

    I posted this quite a while ago when I showed the pics of my bags but many have not seen it yet and are interested in making the bags..they are fun fast and easy

    You can get the tape measures at the dollar stores[/quote]
