Time for Lunch

I’ve been looking around for a lunch bag for a while and couldn’t find anything I liked so I did what any aspiring sewer does – I looked for patterns online. Pink Penguin’s Lunch Bag Tutorial  takes you through the steps of creating a cute drawstring lunch bag and it seemed pretty simple.

And yes, I am using my library fabric again. You’d think I would be tired of the Bookish line from Connecting Threads by now, after all I not only have a quilt and pillowcase, I also have two project bags made from it. Maybe I will grow tired someday, but not today!

Anyway, all the pieces came together pretty quickly. I wanted a bit of insulation for my bag so instead of using iron-on interfacing I used quilt batting. I don’t think I’d carry popsicles around in it or anything, but it should be good enough to keep things cool during my commute.

Unfortunately the spool of ribbon I bought only had enough for one of the drawstrings.

OOhh, so close

I had to put the project on hold for a few days until I could get to the store for more ribbon. But I eventually finished it.

Wouldn’t you know it, before I actually got a chance to use this I found my perfect (and store bought) lunch bag – a properly insulated one with a wipeable lining and its own containers designed to fit inside. So it turns out I now have three matching project bags.
