I have made something similar to this in the past, but I used two thicknesses because my kids would lug heavy stuff in it and create holes! It is nice because you can throw it in the washer and dryer for fast and easy cleanup! Always a plus of the kids load it with crumbs! Also a nice way to upcycle memories of a school sweatshirt, similar to those t-shirt quilts! But on an easier and more mangable scale....super idea, thanks for sharing!
