Sewing Project: The Reusable Lunch Bag September 21, 2011 DIY, Eco Friendly Projects, Sewing, Tutorials 2 Comments 5179 I’m on a everything-is-cheaper-if-it’s-reusable kick which prompted me to try and make lunch bags for my husband and I. After a little google-ing, I found this tutorial at Prudent Baby which seemed pretty simple. I wanted to have a little bit of water/leak protection, so I bought some clear vinyl at the fabric store and sandwiched it between two pieces of fabric. All three pieces were cut to 26″ x 9″ and folded in half before sewing, but I think I’ll make Mike’s a little bigger, maybe 28″ x 11″. The instructions on Prudent Baby are very straightforward, so I won’t repeat them, but here is my first try: I saw the clothes pin idea on pinterest and love it, but you could use velcro or a snap. Isn’t she cute? I’m planning to use drop cloth for the manly version and also making some snack bags 🙂 2 Responses Miranda @ Life in the Motherhood September 21, 2011 Cute! I love the idea of reusable lunch bags. Makes me wish we took lunches! (I’m a SAHM and my husband works in a restaurant and isn’t usually there long enough to require taking a meal) Reply Kassi @ Truly Lovely September 21, 2011 Very nice! 🙂 I think I need one! 🙂 Reply Leave a Reply Cancel Reply Your email address will not be published.CommentName* Email* Website CAPTCHA Code * Check here to Subscribe to notifications for new posts Notify me of follow-up comments by email.
