MUST make these. A local store- Craft- O- rama has the cutest oilcloth selection around, and I haven't any idea what to use it for. Also, your design solves the parts that bug me about the 'boughten' ones- the bottom, and the less that trust-worthy straps. Way to Go! And: much gratitude for the complete pattern and tutorial.

nannymac, I will add a small tutorial today for the magnetic snap. It's really very easy and once you learn the method you'll find yourself adding it everywhere!
