I made this cloth lunch bag following this tute .  It was so easy - just two fat quarters, a bit of interfacing, and less than an hour!

Thanks for looking!

It looks bigger the the one's in the tutorial, did you cut bigger or use the large bag instructions?

How darling!  Looks so well made...I love that fabric as well!

Thanks for sharing and thanks for sharing the site!

VERY pretty!  Loved the fabric you used.  I think I read somewhere that you can also use those plastic/clear bathroom liners for the inside of your lunchbag to help isolate the cold or heat of your food and also to avoid spills.  I've never tried it, but it does makes sense to me  Roll Eyes

Thanks for your responses, everyone!  I'm a bit in love with the fabric myself - unfortunately I only bought a fat quarter of it and it was at a craft fair so I have no idea where to get more! Sad

mhills - I followed the directions for the larger bag but mine is actually sideways.  You cut the rectangles to 10x11 and the bag is supposed to be longer than it is wide, but I accidentally did it the other way...

blackpearlprincess - what bathroom linings are you talking about?  I was trying to think of what I could use to insulate the bag but didn't have any ideas.

Bathroom linings?  I wonder if that could be shower curtains?  I can't to find out what this is...I would like to try this. 

What about the InsulBright? (I have never gotten around to trying it though.)

I love the fabrics and the bag! I am thinking maybe I will give it a shot but add in a layer between of vinyl for protection of leakage.

This is really cute! I've been meaning to make one. Even though it was an accident, I like the sideways-ness of the bag. Maybe it will be easier to fit instead of stack food in there. Great job

I haven't sewn in years and have been looking for an easy, useful project to get myself back into sewing. I work as a substitute teacher and tend to carry a bag lunch to school with me, although I don't like to throw away my paper bags so I sometimes reuse them. Since school will be starting again soon I was thinking about making a reusable lunch bag. I tried this today and am very happy with the results. I used a shelf liner for the interior fabric, which is machine washable. I also made some fabric covered ziplock bags to make a whole set(I saw that idea somewhere on this forum too). I'm new so here are the links to my pics...
