Here’s my newest sewing project – a lunch bag. I even took the picture directly upon arrival home from work, on the first day I took it to work. Still in my work clothes. I wanted you to get the total picture of how cool I look when I carry this baby.
Oh yeah. I love it.
This is a project from Sewing Green by Betz White.
I love the fabric I used. It was something I picked up while we were in Galena. And, there’s still some leftover, so now I have to figure out what to do with it. I was actually able to make this lunch bag with all materials I had on hand (I had to substitute grosgrain ribbon for the bias tape because I didn’t have the correct size, but that worked just fine.)
I used fabric on hand, PUL fabric (leftover from Ryan’s Bears bags), fusible fleece, grosgrain ribbon and velcro. I was pretty darn proud of myself that I had everything on hand. I may have sang a song.
It only took about an hour start to finish, which includes cutting. And, if you are anything like me, cutting takes the most time. Oh, that’s just me? I’m a terrible cutter.
All my coworkers even commented on it. Which made me smile. I was really modest when they told me how wonderful it was. I said, “I KNOW! It’s awesome!”
Have I mentioned that modesty is not one of my best qualities. Or really, modesty is not a quality of mine. At all.
It’s large enough to fit a storage container, a banana and a granola bar. Hypothetically. Since I usually bring leftovers for lunch, fitting these items is a necessity.
What do you think? And tell me, do you brown (or multi-color) bag your lunch, too?
