Lately I’ve been looking for the perfect lunch bag. Since I haven’t found it, I’ve been using a big Trader Joe’s cloth shopping bag instead. After getting nagged by Dan a thousand times about carrying that “ugly” thing around, I finally decided to try to make my own. Recently I made some curtains for the windows around our door with this really cute black and white fabric. When I looked at the amount I had left over, I realized that it was the perfect amount to make a simple lunch bag.
I lined it with some plastic liner, hot glued pink ribbon for edging, and repurposed some straps from an old canvas bag I had. It was really easy 🙂 and it works pretty well (although I wish it were bigger).
