Today while he was at school I made him a lunch bag. Using this tutorial and lining it with an old vinyl (poison poison) table cloth. (I justify my material choice with... it was free and will not be in direct contact with his food)
It is pretty thick, my poor machine had to work pretty hard to get through all those layers at times. I did Jacks only in the vinyl, making it more lightweight than Solomons. Jack also asked for a different design, this is the one he preferred. Personally, I like these but I am not this talented or confident yet, nor do I need a bagged lunch very often. (but my sister does, and she likes vintage pillowcases, I am sure)
I may make adjustments to both these designs but for now, this is it. After the lunch sacks are done I plan to make matchy matchy sandwich and snack bags.
Yes Tiffany, you can come sew with me and we can make you some too. Oh and Judi when are your quilting parties starting up?
