It looks great - well done you. I've made three story sacks over the past year and whats so versatile is that you never finish them off. You can be out shopping one day and see a finger puppet or a toy which you know will work so well with all the other things you've added to the sack. They are such wonderful resources which are always a huge hit with the children. My story sacks are The very hungry caterpillar, three little pigs and the gingerbread man. I'd like to do more!
