My patterns are like pets- a couple of them behave OK but you know with a little extra time and effort, they could be really really good. The waste free lunch bag is one of those pets. It was fine, but I knew that I could do better.
I really like the tie handles and this one comes together nice and quick. There is no divider like in the old version but the dimensions are the same- roomier than the Love Your Lunch Box. Although a child (and my 7 year old has already claimed this one!) could certainly use it, an adult could take it work too.
I used Liz Scott's Sugar Pop fabrics which turned out really cute.
For the interior I used Sweetwater laminated cotton which was on sale. I think it will be nice to wipe clean but I also made a bag in all cotton which was a lot quicker and less expensive. I could see making a couple of the all cottons and just interchanging them for lunch while one is in the wash. Here is the plainer version which I still love!
I will be finishing the pattern this afternoon and it will be in the shop by tomorrow! It's in the shop! Now my problem is do I just replace the old version (as originally planned) or keep them both in the shop? Leave a comment here and on THursday, June 9th, I will pick 3 winners from the comments to try out the NEW waste Free Lunch Bag. Give away closed! Thanks for all the comments!
