We’re both really happy with how it turned out. I, basically, sewed a big rectangle with 2 layers of fabric and a layer of batting. Then I sewed a long piece of velcro along the two contact points. Then I folded up the bottom to form the pockets and sewed along the edges and the lines to form the pockets. Voila! And now I have another child who would like one…. 🙂
