Ha!  I am a super lazy sewer and I despise using a seam ripper. 

It was super easy to do the velcro.  I centered and sewed it on the outside piece after ironing on the fusible.  Then I sewed the other velcro to one side of the flap, put the 2 together and sewed 3 sides.  I just trimmed the flap to the length I wanted it when I was inserting it before topstitching.

I think it took me about 20 minutes to make the entire thing - I love fast, instant gratification projects!   Grin

Ok, great!  I thought that with the padding in the velcro strap it would look bulky on the back...I guess you just need to take care when putting it together, right?  Wink

Ok, does anyone have experience with the iron-on velcro?  I guess I just don't understand how you put the velcro on without having the stich go all the way through the sandwich...Huh...Is it hand sewn?

I'll probably get the iron-on stuff, and do a few stiches around the edge anyway, just to make sure  Wink

Jessiac_3 - You can sew the velcro on first before you put all the pieces together.  That way you won't see it through the back.  All you do is sew one side centered anywhere from 1/2 - 1" from the side on the outside piece.  Then, sew the other side to the flap before you sew it together. 

Does that make sense?

I just wanted to say thank you for adding pictures to your tutorial.  It's very kind of you.  I'm far better with visual directions and this will really help.  I'm hoping to make one this weekend.  Thanks again!   Cheesy
