On Sunday last week, my daughter Marianne asked me if I'd be willing to make her a lunch bag for school. She's tired of cafeteria food and wants to bring her own lunch. I told her I would be happy to make one for her of course...
If you've been following me here for a bit, you might remember the lunch bags I made for Christmas last year. It would have been so easy to just make one for her, but no... I had to try a new pattern!
I found this one and got to work right away.
I used some Cherry Christmas (by Aneela Hoey) charms I had leftover from a quilt I'm working on now and paired it with Little Apples fat quarters (also by Aneela Hoey).
I didn't have interfacing on hand so the handles are a little bit "floppy", but other than that, I really like this little bag.
I used a matching red zipper...
And this super fun print for the lining.
Unfortunately, the size turned out a little bit too narrow - the bottom isn't wide enough to fit containers. So I decided to keep this one and make Marianne another one. I'll probably just end up using the same tutorial I used for the Christmas bags... :-)
Do you have a favourite tutorial for a small bag?
I will be linking up at Crazy Mom Quilts and at Chezzetcook Modern Quilts for TGIFF.
