    I posted pics a while ago about my son Michael that made a tote. He is my special child and there are lots of things he can't do but he had a great time making his tote. Your feedback was wonderful and just made his day. He was so excited. About a week later he brought a package to me when I got home. He thought it was a squishy for me but it had his name on it. I told him it was for him and was he ever excited. He couldn't get it opened fast enough and loved everything inside. ( It was from imjustme ) He was so happy to get a squishy just like I do. Thank you imjustme. You made his day.

    Hi Michael,

    I really like your tote bag. It looks like you did a great job :thumbup:
    It also looks like you have some "camping" fabric to make another one. Whatever you make, please have your Mom post a picture so we all can see.
    Is that your pet hamster or guinea pig I see behind you?
    Take care and keep sewing...you are doing great :-D :-D :-D

    I didn't see this topic. I had responded on your earlier one!

    Boy that is one happy fellow!

    What a fantastic job on the tote. You both should be very proud.

    I have a forever brother, and when he is able to do something it comes out wonderful. I see Michael is the same way.

    My father who is no longer with us used to say, that if he wasn't mentally challenged he would be a genius! I believe that honestly.

    If you PM me your address, I will send Michael some material for another project.

    Don't want to waste all that talent!

    What a lovely story and great pics, what will your next project be together I wonder? I am not sure what a 'squishie' is but if I keep reading I guess I am sure to find out!
    Keep up the good work!

    A squishie is a package in the mail with fabric in it. Usually it comes in a mailing envelope and so is not stiff, but "squishie". Hopefully that makes sense, cause it's kind of hard to explain.

    Michael, You did such a good job. I think tote's can be kind of hard to make sometimes, so I am impressed. And, I love your chicken fabric. I would definitly pick that out. I love fabric with chickens on it. I am always looking for some, and you put it together well in a way that really looks great.
