Thanks ladies!  It's really nice for when you're running into a store really quick or a store where there aren't carts.  So much easier on my wrists this way.  It turned out far better than I thought it was going to happily.

Meghan, you should definitely try one out!  There's a little bit of a learning curve to getting it adjusted just right and comfortable, but it's fairly easy.  This is my first one and I made it in a toddler width since DS isn't exactly little anymore and it works out great!

The fabric is a linen/cotten blend and came from Joann's.  It wasn't exactly cheap, but I wanted something in a print not a solid cause I think it helps hide the wrinkles.Tongue  Oh and I used this website as a guide:


I had to tweak the instructions slightly being that I made it toddler width, but all in all a very easy project that if you can use a sewing machine at all is totally doable.

That turned out great! I love the fabric, I have a purse in the same fabric that I got from Target a few years ago!
