My sons have recently started a program called Therapeutic Listening. It involves listening to customized CDs with a portable CD player and special headset. I wanted a way for them to be able to move around freely while listening to their CD, so I set out to make them CD player belts. I didn’t find any online tutorials – most likely because most people use iPods these days (I found plenty of iPod case/carrier tutorials) – so I decided to make one myself. Hopefully it will help someone else along the way. :)
I recently went through all of my scrap fabric and was sorting through what to keep, what to get rid of and deciding what to do with the larger pieces. Then I came across this tutorial, thanks to a friend’s post on FaceBook: http://www.skiptomylou.org/2009/07/17/how-to-make-a-simple-reversible-totebag/
It looked like a great, simple use of some of the scrap fabric I have, and my kids love totes, so I gave it a try. Overall, it’s a quick and easy tutorial, but I have a few comments and recommendations to make it a little better.
One of my boys recently discovered a scrap of Buzz Lightyear fabric I had left over from a previous project. He asked me to make him something, so I scoured the Internet and found this tutorial for a toddler backpack that looked easy enough: http://indietutes.blogspot.com/2009/10/toddler-backpack-pattern.html
