    Those snap bags look really cute - where did you get the tutorial for them or is it an embroidery design? I know I saw somewhere a site or two selling embroidery designs for them but they look easy enough to make on your own - I love the prairie point you added to them - very cute!

    It is a sewing pattern, and the prairie points are on both sides.Thanks! i will look for the pattern and let you know the designer. it had 3 different sizes, this is the mallest one. you use a metal tape measure in the top part, hence the "snap"..

    That apron is really cute--your brother is going to be "styling" at the grill!

    and your snap bags are cute too.

    Hi,

    Wow, love the apron (was it easy to make, as I am a beginner and would love to know where I can get the pattern)

    Also love the snap bags.

    Great Job and thanks for sharing!

    The snap bags are really interesting to make. They are fast to make, with the quilting taking the longest, though I don't imagine you'd have to quilt a small one. Here's a picture of one being put together.

    Crafty bear..i had an apron i got at a thrift shop and used that as a pattern. my brother is a big guy, so i used WOF for across the chest. I used up 1 and 1/2 yards of fabric for the front and the same for the back. If you want the thrift store apron, i can send it to you. just PM me your address. there was no way i was going to buy a pattern, for a one shot deal.
    if you go to

    I don't quite understand the measuring tape in the picture...is that actually closure? Can you give a brief description of how it goes together? The purses are sooooo cute!

    The measuring tape is in the top, in the closure. I have "some" pictures of the process..not many. i was getting excited when it started coming together, and forgot to take more pictures!

    I see how it works now...thanks for the pictures. It's hard to believe that there is enough "snap" in the tape to hold it closed. Thanks again.

    Oh yeah, there's plenty of snap since the tape measure wants to go back to its original shape. The trickiest part of this is sewing the last seam up the side next to the tape measure and then turning it right side out. I did a 3-step zig zag on the side seams before turning it right side out.

    They're a hit at church fairs and craft fairs.
