    These are some bags I made from the "Snap Happy" bag pattern. They are cute and fun to make.

    Is this the pattern that uses part of horizontal shades? What do you use them for? The fabric is adorable.

    These are the ones that use the metal measuring tape. I plan to use the halloween ones and put treats in them for a couple of special children I know.

    How Cute. These have been on my to do list for awhile. Your Halloween one's gave me an idea for the trick or treaters since we give pencils and candy I could make them pencil box shaped.

    How funny! I totally just got that pattern this weekend but in a bigger "purse" form! Did you just cut up a measuring tape for that part or can you buy pieces somewhere? Yours are adorable!

    I use mine as a catch all in my purse. I put lipstick, dental floss, brush, etc. in it. I think you'd have to make a smaller version with a shorter metal tape for the top if you want to put coins in it.

    FYI I get the mesureing tape at the dollar store you have to have masking tape and some way to curve the ends sharp scissors work but dont use your sewing sissors and once you cut the end of the tape make sure you lock the tape mesure or pull it all the way out and cut that way not pretty if it rolls inside :-)

    These are so cute. I have this pattern, but have not made any. Hmmm, maybe this should move up in my project line (smile). Love the idea of using them for trick or treat bags. Thanks for sharing.

    Yes, I just used a dollar store measuring tape and cut it up with an old pair of scissors. In one of them I doubled up on the tape and it seemed like a stronger close. I was thinking of making a larger version for a cosmetic bag.

    I love that pattern too. I have even made them bigger and taped 2 pieces of the metal rule together for each side to make it work better.
