I made a couple of these for my parents as gifts, but hadn't gotten around to making them for us . . . then took the family to an amusement park and borrowed the ones I'd made my parents - SOOO useful!  So I finally got around to making them for us!

Here they are:

From R to L - for me, my DD, my DH, and my DS.  I didn't do the Dora fabric right - I turned it so there were 2 upright Dora's and one upside-down . . . didn't think about the fact that the upside-down one would be front and center!  Oh, well . . .

Mine and DH's hanging up

The kids' ones hanging - see the right-side-up Dora?   Cheesy

Thanks for looking!

I love this idea. These would make a good gift, and since I'm looking for gift ideas, thank you!  Cheesy

Those are very cute!  I have them on my never-ending "to-do" list, but haven't gotten around to them yet.  Someone tell me to get off my duff and get them done!   Wink

Very cute! I like the fact that they have a ring to clip things to it, very useful.

I like your water bottles - they're on my "To Do" list as well!  Which tutorial or pattern did you use?

Hey threegirlsandaboy --- get off your duff and get cracking!!!  Well, someone had to say it, lol!

These look great. I have tried making some but I just can not  figure out how to use the D-rings this way. Could you give me any pointers?
Thank you

Thanks everyone!  IT was totally not my original idea, though - sorry I forgot to post the tute link.  I'll try to find it for you.  And you should see some of the cool variations people on here have done wiht it - little me had a cool one and so did someone else, but I don't remember who.  If you do a search of this board, youshould find them, though!

As for the D-rings, they're pretty easy.  First, you put the strap through both D-rings, then sew it down.  So you just have the long strap with two D-rings dangling from the end.  Then you thread the other strap up through both D-rings and then over the first one and through the second, if that makes sense.  I'll try to take pics for you . . . AFTER doing this threading is when you sew something to the end of the short strap to keep it from pulling back through the rings.  (I can't tell you how many times I had to rip out the stitches on the short strap because I was oh-so-clever to try to do all of that before threading it through!!)

I'll find the tute and some pics of the D-ring stuff and post again later.

Thanks again for the compliments! Grin
