Summer sewing

A year ago,  I made myself a lunch bag – and have enjoyed it very much. You can see the lunch bag here.

During the past year, I decided to make one for a fundraising Gala because so many people at work had liked mine. See that one here. At that time, I decided the lunch bag would be better a little bigger, and I found someone on the interwebs who had worked out all the measurements. I really liked how the bigger one turned out, and the person that bought it at auction has really enjoyed using it.

So, I decided to make myself another one, but the bigger size. SO here is lunch bag 3.

P1100092I love the top cover that cinches everything inside.P1100090I did add a pocket on the outside of the front – for chapstick, kleenex, utensils –

P1100093The added pocket does make the front of the bag a bit “busy” – but I can live with that. The back of the bag is a little more coordinated looking.

Here is the original online tutorial for the small size bag – http://ayumills.blogspot.com/2010/08/tutorial-lunch-bag.html

And here is the blog where the large bag measurements are listed:http://thedomesticgroove.blogspot.com/2010/08/big-lunch-bag-adapted-from-pink-penguin.html

I still plan to make some coordinating reusable lunch baggies and napkins for the new bag.. like I did for the Gala bag. But that is for next week.
