    I just wanted to make sure that people trace this thing GENTLY, like using a soft-lead pencil with light pressure, or a felt-tip pen. With an LCD screen you will not want to press a ball-point pen hard onto the screen it could damage it. Thanks!

    Recently I bought an EZ Weavy Tote Bag kit from ALEX Toys.
    I love the material it is made from. It straps or strips are almost like Palett Strapping, but they came in wonderful bright colors and were less plastic and more paper. Does anyone know what this material is ? I have been all over the Internet without any lunck at all
