Not at all it was surprisingly easy, I was expecting all kinds of problems, it did make a  popping sound every time the needle punched through thou

What a great idea! 

Did you insulate the inside of the bag itself, or just the pouches?

I thought about insulating the bag and have plenty of  the sunshade left to do that but I like the idea of the individual insulated pouches, as soon as I find a couple of more placemats I will make an insulated bottle holder and insulated container holderd for salads etc

I plan on making a tutorial for this as soon as I have some free time and can work out  the directions, I just sort of threw it together without measuring  anything,so i know I have to go back to the back and figure things out.

would this be the best place to post the tutorial?

I love this. The placemats you used for this are awesome. Does the windshield cover really work to insulate? I was thinking about making one of those backpack picnic baskets, and was wondering what I could use to insulate it.

Ditto the inquiry!

My sunshade is looking floppy around the edges and I would love to recycle it into a thermal lining for my lunch bag -- but only if it'll work.  Wink
