“perfect for snacks”

This is a darling little lunch box designed for elementary school students. It features a boxy shape, optional water (or juice) bottle holder, side pockets, & a velcro flap. The finished bag is 8" x 8" x 2.75".

You can use endless fabric combos to make this very functional lunch box cute and fun. The instructions are clear and simple with lots of pictures to help guide you. This is a pattern that will come to you by email in PDF format. You will need about a 1/2 yard of fabric, interfacing, cotton batting, velcro & a sewing machine!

This pattern was easy to follow and the finished lunch box was very cute, but it was too small to hold a full lunch.

Easy to follow directions but a little on the small side.

I love the pattern, however, I agree with previous reviews that it is way too small to be a lunch bag. So I am just going to make a bigger version. I am also going to put a longer strap on it because my daughter wants to be able to carry it across her body at school. The pattern is simple and the directions are written well!

This bag was a lot smaller than I thought it would be, and because of its size, I found it very difficult to turn right side out during construction. The oilcloth was a new fabric for me, and this may have added to my troubles. My sides ended up ripping, and I could not finish it.

I´m loved doing this lunchbag. My girls loved them, now I have to make another one for my little boy.

it is a tad small once you get ice packs and things in there but its a good patten and works for snack time for my kindergartner

I little ones wanted specific lunch boxes. One Hello Kitty or Geishas and one cars. Had a blast puting them together and the pattern I even tweeked a bit adding two pockets. One on the rear and one on the side

Not too hard. My girls loved them but I followed the pattern exactly and it was a little small for my girls lunches but as a snack bag it was perfect!

Awesome! My avid sewing 8 yr old (with very little help) made one of these as a Christmas gift for one of her Brownie (Girl Scout) friends... She was so pleased with herself. The instructions were clear and easy to follow and the end product just so darn cute she wants to make 3 more! LOL! One for herself and 2 of her sisters!

I loved this bag, however, I found it too small for what I thought it was. The pockets on the side were just too tight to get anything much in and I didn't think the overall size would fit more than a couple of baby bottles. BUT, I am doing another-cause I really love the look of this bag-with only a change to the width of the side and pocket pieces. Even just pinned together, I think this is much more suitable for the lunch bag I had in mind! The bottom and side will measure 3" now and give me some extra room to insert lunch goodies! I'm even looking at adjusting up-and adding to-to make a baby bag for a friend!
