Another back to school project – her lunch bag was whipped up in record time, just a simple lined tote with cute Suzy’s Zoo quilted fabric. I could wash it but I didn’t like how her water bottle always falls over and sometimes leaks, so time for a new bag!
Ta-da! Don’t you just love the fabric? It was in my stash since last June. Could never bear to use it. It’s a Japanese fabric. But this year I resolve to use up my stash (so that I can buy more ;P)
Lined with polka dotted cotton linen, also from Japan. I added a divider so that her water bottle can stand upright, and a pocket for utensils.
It was my first time making a bag with a sewn in divider and a facing piece. Took some time to figure it out. Looks pretty good huh?
It looks a little big, but it was made based on the height of her water bottle, and to accomodate 3 lunch boxes (2 for lunch for long days in school) and 1 for recess.
Let’s see how this will look next year!
