And here's a peek at the foam core board bottom:
Kathy was thrilled (and a little misty) when I brought her the bag the next day. She took it home to him at lunchtime and told me later that he clutched it to his chest, saying "Mine....all mine" or words to that effect. I guessed it's worked fine for him, and it made him happy, Kathy happy, and me happy that I was able to use my sewing skills to craft something that they might never have been able to find for this very special, specific purpose. And isn't that the great thing about knowing how to sew? Yay for us "Sewists"!!!!!!
Kathy took pics of him using the bag, but she's on vacation for a couple of weeks - I'll try to post a pic of him, with bag, when she gets back. Doing unexpected good deeds is certainly good for the soul, don't you think?
