I'm doing a craft swap with an online friend.  I made this for her 3 year old son.  It's an I Spy Bag.  It has pictures of the 49 (I missed one item LOL) small items on one side of the laminated card, and a printed list on the other for when he starts reading.  I hope they like it! :-)

What a great idea!
What did you use for filling?

It looks like you used little plastic beans. They are used to melt down into plastic things, and it's also used as stuffing to give toys some weight(a la beanie babies). I have all the little trinkets and have sewn the bag to make an I spy bag for my bf's niece, I just need to find the filling. I love the fabric you chose and I love the idea of putting pictures on the card as well as words. Awesome job!

The plastic things in the bag are called Poly Pellets.  I got them from Joann's Fabrics, but I think you can buy them online too.  Walmart used to carry them, but they don't anymore.

Thanks for the comments.  This was my second bag.  The first one went to my Grandson for his birthday.  I forgot to take pics of it before I gave it to him.

I also put a pocket on the back of the bag to hold the card when it's not being used. :-)

Awesome idea about the pocket! I'll have to add one to the one I'm making.

Thanks for this idea. I just got a couple of new nephews and if I can remember, this will be a great gift idea in a few years!
