Reusable Lunch Bags with a Flair!

How adorable are these lunch bags?  I found these on www.marthastewart.com and thought they were a great craft to do with your kids or just make one for yourself!

The same oilcloth that covers your kitchen table can transport your children’s lunches — or your own — in leak-free style. These reusable bags will cut back on waste since they can simply be washed with a damp sponge (oilcloth is not washing-machine safe). Use a single print for the whole bag, or cut out complementary patterns or solid colors for side panels. You can attach small Velcro tabs to hold the bags closed, or clip the tops with colorful wooden clothespins.

 

 

 

 

Lunch Bag How-To
Cut main piece 29 1/2 by 8 inches and two side panels, each 12 1/4 by 5 inches.

1. Fold long panel, inside out, into U shape with 5-inch bottom.

2. Make 1/4-inch cut at bottom corners of side and middle pieces so bag folds smoothly. Sew-in side panels, leaving 1/4-inch seam allowance.

 

3. Turn right side out and top-stitch all around, 1/8 inch from edge.
