InstructionsCan be a bit tricky getting around the corners if you use piping. Make notches in the piping. I also put my grandson's name and his parents' phone #'s inside on the interfacing with a fabric pen.

What was your inspiration?
Rae's site is very inspiring. Then there's that dinosaur fabric...
What are you most proud of?
I am proud of the fact that I piped the edges (optional) and also finished off the inside seams with bias tape. I always feel that the inside is just as important as the outside.
What advice would you give someone starting this project?
Depending on your fabrics, there can be some thickness issues getting around the corners. Trim and clip those corners! Use a larger machine needle (I used a #90). Rae's instructions are very clear but read them a couple of times before starting.
