I made one for my 4 year old grandson with a cars & trucks material (that he picked out).. and he loves it!!!

 ...  I'm a beginner  and the tutorial was so easy to follow.  this is the first thing I was able to make perfectly.

thanks so much

Thanks for posting! My daughter's learning to sew and I'm always on the look out for fun projects for her to do. This one is perfect for her to stitch and give as a birthday gift for one of her friends. Sew cute! (Excellent video quality too.)

Very nice and detailed video, which is what I like.  I am a visual learner so videos suit me best.  I have seen a few other tutorials online for this exact shape bag but theirs were lined with a different fabric, which is what I like.  Your bags are nice too.  Thanks for sharing.

Amazing! This gave me an idea on what to do with some of the zippers in my stash.

This is a great little bag and even though I don't do much sewing anymore, I'm likely to make at least one of them.  But what I really want to comment on is your video!  The video and audio are outstanding quality.  This is probably the best sewing tutorial I've ever watched.  As far as I can see, your instructions are perfect.  They're clear and concise--and you walked us through every detail that we needed to know.  I've been a teacher most of my adult life and often I'm frustrated by tutorials.  Yours gets an A+!

I normally do not watch videos clear through, but I like that you moved quickly and didn't spend a lot of time on the simplistic stuff. Clever little bag! I will be making some of those for sure. I have a stash of zippers and (of course) a lot of fabrics! Thanks!
