The designer received some excellent 5-star feed back from her customers for her very inventive and useful project. Here are two of the reviews:

  1. Niki said – Love this pattern! I just made one for my niece and it sewed up beautifully. Very clever design, and nice and clear instructions.
  2. Joanne said – Wow. This is the most clever design! Allow plenty of time to walk through the process the first time, as you are doing unnatural things with zippers. Then you can knock out these great zip bins like nobody’s business.
