This is a quick little project I whipped out for my 3-year old son, Huck. He needed a snack sack for summer school. It is a little smaller than a regular lunch sack-just big enough for a juice box,a pack of animal crackers and a clementine. It has a little strap on the back (that matches the lining) that he can either hold or sling over his shoulder. If I did it again, I'd probably add a stiff rectangle of something (heavy interfacing? plastic? something washable.) to the bottom of the sack so that it would hold it's shape better when it is picked up and loaded with yummies.






UPDATE: I made a tutorial for this on my blog/Flickr (very, very, very image heavy, so I couldn't easily do it here). The tute is slightly modified from the original to correct some issues I discovered after some use:

I love it! I have been looking for something like this for my backpack. Did you use a pattern for this? If so, which one?

I didn't use a pattern. I was thinking of doing a tute on it, though, after making some revisions to the design. My 2-year-old really wants one of his own:)
 I'll be sure to add the link here if I do a tute!

Gorgeous, and if you wanted to add some stiffness to the bottom you could still do it even though it's finished.
Just cover some needlepoint plastic (is that what it's called?) in your fabric, make a pocket put in plastic then sew it up adding some velcro to the bottom before you finish it then pop it in the lunch sack, if you need to machine wash the bag then you just take out the bottom piece because it's removable, neat huh!  Wink

It's gorgeous! Do you know who the designer of the fabric is? I love the button :-)
