This is a pattern designed to make your lunch experience more stylish and to help reduce waste. No more trash to throw away after your lunch. Have you noticed how it really adds up? This is how you can start to make a difference! It is so important for kids (and adults!) to learn the benefits of creating less waste. What could be better than a fun sewing project that also helps them learn about doing their part for the planet?

I designed this bag for my 9 year old niece who is recycling maniac! She already had a bag she brought to school but wanted one that hold her water bottle, sandwich and snack without everything getting all smooshed together. This bag does it all! It is meant to hold a sandwich, a snack bag, a small water bottle or drink, an apple, & a small yogurt. Obviously you can change all of this to fit your own lunch diet or your child's.

This is a pattern which you will receive electronically by email in PDF format. It is instructions for how to make your own lunch bag. You will need about a 1/2 yard of fabric and about a 1/2 yard of fusible interfacing to make this. The finished bag measures 9.5" tall by 9" wide when full of lunch. It has a large interior pocket that fits a standard size snack bag. There is a divider in the middle to keep thing organized and a bottler holder strap that you will easily custom fit to your bottle. A 6" velcro closure keeps everything secure.

The color and fabric combination choices are endless! You could also just use this bag as a purse and use the knowledge you gain from making this to make larger and smaller bags, add extra pockets, and custom fit it to your needs.

*Note: These are downloadable instructions and patterns for making a bag.

Fun to make matching lunch bags and sandwich/snack bags. My kids love that they can personalize their lunch bags and are not stuck with the store selection.
