Anyway, this was the second lunch bag I have made using Ayumi's awesome tutorial (the first was Corey's Spartan Lunch Bag for his birthday). The brown parts are duck cloth left over from Larry's 5-Gallon Bucket Organizer and the rest of the fabric are cute fat quarters I picked up at Jo-Ann's. The cording is more of my favorite parachute cord, and I used felt for batting. The original tutorial doesn't call for batting, but it also calls for the bag to be made from canvas instead of quilting cotton. I also figured the felt would give it a bit of insulation. I just scored a remnant of Insul-Brite a few days ago, so I'm going to have to try to make a lunch bag for myself with that at some point. Maybe I'll even use the oil cloth scraps I have. Ooh -- If I didn't have two school Halloween parties to attend today, I would totally be sewing that.
Here is the view from the top. Yet again, this is one of those projects that turned out so cute that I hated to give it away! Guess that means I need to make me one.
