That way when I get the time to make them I pull a few out at a time and work on them from start to finish and all my pieces are precut including the thread to sew them and I just need to assemble them.
With my little one I have to take advantage of working standing up in the kitchen or sitting in the playroom so its nice to be able to have everything all organized on the fly...lol
All the tips I've read so far are fabulous thanks to op for starting this and for everyone that has shared..it's very nice.
I LOVE that tip!!! Will definitely be doing this from now on!! Thanks!

Very cool! So this is what you use? Is this the way you do it? I might need to try this. Can you get them at any craft store? http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rGd0PUWY6m0
