I finally had a chance to make one of these! I ran into a couple of problems (no fault of the tutorial, though!). My D-ring was too small, so I made a separate tab to put it through. And, I couldn't find decent snaps and my Velcro seems to have vanished, so I had to use sew-on snaps (which I hate). I also forgot to change out the thread so I stitched it all in white, but the 7-year old recipient didn't seem to notice. Other than that, it came out great! Thanks for such a great tutorial, vegbee!
