Thanks Vonnie , that will be my next project. It will be great to keep in the car when we go on long trips, or to carry with us to the ball games.

Thank you soooo much for sharing the pattern. I love the idea alot. Makes a great gift. I was looking at the pattern and I just want to know, how to do a 1/2 shell. I have never done that stitch before. It's probably easy.
