Oooh, such great feedback everybody!

I would consider doing a tute if I can get myself together.  I'll have more free time next week to craft my brains out.

It is indeed filled with rice.  

I, too, love that it's self-contained, so no little bits get lost or eaten by younger siblings/pets.  When I saw the idea, I knew I had to make one when the opportunity presented itself.  

Getting together all the bits and pieces is kind of like a treasure hunt in the junk drawer of the house!  If you want to make one, start compiling tiny items now.

I seriously have to make one of these.  My (almost) 5yr old would LOVE it!
And thanks for the vinyl sewing tip!

I am a total copycat.

I saw this post and immediately made one for my kiddo. It was quick and painless... a nice change from most of the crafts I attempt Smiley

Hope the kiddo likes his morning surprize!

Wow! That is so cool. Not bad for a long road trip or a plane ride... I need to make one!
My sister has a ton of tiny plastic toys that annoy the heck out of me, this is a good way to keep them all in on spot instead of under her bed.

I liked the idea so much, I searched for a tutorial right away (found a good one here: http://rosie-baby-crafty.blogspot.com/2007/08/i-spy-bags.html).
So here is my first (unfinished) I spy bag (has to be washed first because of the tailorchalk and then stuffed with rice and lovely girly things  Cheesy) .. I just wanted to tell y'all that is it FUN to make these!! I just used a thick plastic bag (dubble) for the window, so no nasty vinyl  Grin



PS: the little square on top will be the indexcard (after I print it on red fabric and sew this on the card), attached with a red ribbon to the pillow.
