What makes my kids happy is them lunch box. I usually make sandwiches but they can choose a snack, a fruit and a little candy. I want them to have a nice lunch time during their school day. One thing was still missing: funny lunch bags! Those a very simple to make. It’s the same process as making fabric basket. You just need add handles and a zipper. I will suggest to use a thick cotton fabric. If you choose to work with thin fabric you will have to stiffen the fabric with interfacing. Let’s start sewing!
Choose two matching fabrics, one for outside and an other for the lining. In each fabric, cut a rectangle of 30′ x 10′ to make the bag. For the handles you gonna need two fabric rectangles of 12′ x 4′. You will also need a 12 inch long zipper.
Let’s make the handles. Take the two small rectangles and fold them in two lengthwise wrong side out. Sew two edges and leave one of the small side open to return the fabric. When the right side is out, sew the opening with a few hand stitches.
Et voila, some nice lunch bags ready for school! If you like more sewing project, you can have a look at this 30 minutes pouch tutorial.
