    I made this for my sister for Christmas and she ADORES it. It seriously only took about a half hour or so. I can’t wait to make one for myself. Thanks!

    Raven, this was EXACTLY what I was looking for! I love tutorials that are so clear. It wasn’t until I read the comment about music that I realized I hadn’t turned my sound up to hear your explanation, but it was so clear I didn’t even need it! Ooops. Thanks again!

    Really cool, I’ve been wanting to get one of those and never found one I liked, will try to do my own with your directions, I’m a newbie and I really appreciate how clearly explained it is, specially the slip stitch technique, thanks a lot! Love the music too.
