My sister's boyfriend is a relatively new addition to our family, so I was struggling a bit with what to make him for Christmas.  I mean, I was making something for everyone else.

When I asked my sister what he likes, she was vague and mentioned "shirts like Dad wears" and "the outdoors".  Yeah.  Thanks for narrowing it down.

I had a Goodwill shirt that fit the bill, but what to do with it?

I settled on a lunch bag, because he's got to eat, right?  And the outdoors part... how about a beaver?

So, the B3 bag was born.  (His name is Brian, so B3 is Brian's Beaver Bag).  I followed the tutorial on [The Purl Bee, (http://www.purlbee.com/back-to-school-lunchbag/) with the change being that mine is lined with a different fabric.  Great tutorial and so quick!

I hope he likes it.  He'll look cool carrying his lunch to work, right?

He'll look cool carrying that anywhere!  You've done so much with so  little information!

Yes... I should have added more information.  (Sorry, this is one of my first posts).  Like I said, the tutorial is really good (see link on original post) and doesn't need elaborating from ol' me, but I should have mentioned that I used Heat 'n Bond to attach the B, the 3 and the beaver himself.  I attached them and sewed the button on before I sewed the front piece to the lining.  Then I sewed the plaid pieces to the lining, sewed the front and back together, squared off the corners (see tutorial) and done!  It's fast... like, 20 minutes once you have your pieces assembled.

I'm going to work on some more.  Re-usable lunch bags!  Yay!
