I have been trawling the 'net trying to find a metal lunch box for my 5 yr old that doesn't have Twilight or Star Wars on it, but had no luck.
Instead, I made him this lunch bag with scraps from my stash. The bag has dark blue corduroy inside and bright red outside. I didn't have enough to do the top of the outside, so I added in a strip of patchwork cotton. The bag closes with a strip of velcro, and I put elastic in the 'short' side to pull the bag in a bit at the top.
It is just big enough for his thermos, a snack box some fruit. I can also put a plastic ice brick in the bottom if needed.

For the pattern I just traced around his old metal lunch box and winged it from there!


I fund my yarn obsession by making funky doll clothes

Ooh, I envy your creativity, making this totally from scratch (no pattern, tutorial, etc) and all.  Excellent work and very cute lunch tote!

God doesn't send people to hell.  He simply honors their choice.
