The last one didn't make it far. It worked great, but the laminate that I ironed on couldn't hold up to the daily folding and crinkling the bag took. Here it is new:
|Previous new lunch bag|
|After four months of daily use.|
So I figured it was time for a new one. I liked the insulation, but I didn't like that the construction of the bag was exactly the same size for the inside and the outside, so there wasn't any room for the insulation.
So I nosed around on the internet (All hail the great god Google!) and found this on Lemon Squeezy Home. I really liked the flap, and the handle she added later. So off I went.
And came up with this:
It's not insulated, but it has a flap, so no more curling. It's lined in oilcloth, and I tried sewing the outer bag with slightly smaller seams, and the inner bag with slightly larger seams, so the inner bag fits nicely inside. I had some red marbled fabric to make the binding (STASH! Does that make this project into a stash busting project?).
I'm pretty happy with it. Now I just have two and a half more yards of oilcloth to use up!
