I love this idea! I need to know how to sew very badly. Ok, I have to ask... you used the terms "clinical supervisor" and "self-contained." Would you happen to be a speech-language pathologist? Like me?  Grin 

Also, "this rocks" hehe

Oh, yes, I am a speech pathologist.  And a crafter.  I think they're great therapeutic/teaching tools too -- you can hide themed objects in there, and try to find/describe them.

This is such a great idea that I was wracking my brain trying to think of someone I could make this for NOW. (My son is only 9 months old.) A second cousin-in-law, however, is about to turn 4 in April.....

When I showed this to my mother, who is a special ed teacher and a teacher for the deaf, she said this was something they used a lot in the classroom with kids who had speech problems... Educational and fun. AWESOME!

Thanks so much for the tute!

Craftster Best of 2008!

WOW!  I had never even heard of anything like this!  I like the idea of the attached card so it doesn't get lost, and I like the idea of the pocket, too.  I think maybe I'll make the pocket AND attach the card so you can slip it in and out but still not lose it.  The tip about using the comforter bags was great, too.  I have so many of those that are waiting for a use, so that's one less thing to buy.

After spending WAY too much money on Christmas gifts last year, my goal this year is a completely homemade Christmas.  This idea will be great for several kids on my list.  THANK YOU for sharing!!

I've seen something similar to this using a Ball jar.  I like your version a lot better!  Little ones can use it without fear of breaking glass.

Very cool idea for a gift!   Cheesy

Thanks for the tip about sewing with vinyl too! 

I'll have to try this for my little niece.  I'd much rather get her something that's has some mental stimulation rather than some of the dumbed down toys that are out now.

HaHaHa  I just had to read that twice because I thought the kids reached INTO the bag and got the toys out. What a mess that would have made!!! Didn't realize you stitched it up like a decorative pillow Smiley  I have never seen one of these before and can't wait to go make one...or 2 or 3!!!

I've been planning on buying one of these on etsy for the longest time...now, with your help, I may just make one! (unless of course the whole vinyl sewing thing doesn't work out! lol) Thanks so much for the tute!!

I looooooove personal swaps! Anyone want to do a wall art swap??
