Groovy Lunch Bag

Don't fall over from shock - two posts in one day from me!

Had to post a couple of quick photos of my new and groovy lunch bag. I was heartily sick of taking my lunch to work in a daggy old (and non-recyclable) supermarket plastic bag. So, using the Flea Market Bag pattern I picked up a while back, I used some thermal-lined curtain fabric I found at Spotlight and whipped this up over the weekend. (sorry about the average photos and flash blast...not enough hours in the day!)

It was also a practice run for a reversible bag I'm making for my SIL for Christmas, from this and this lovely Denyse Schmidt fabric I picked up on sale from Quilt Fabric Delights.


I'll definitely put a base in the one I make for Jacinta, as the one I made is a bit floppy - perfect for a lunch bag though :)

Some lovely bag. Such a pity I have my workspace at home, so I don’t have to take my lunch in a bag...

Nothing makes a lunch taste better than a great bag!

It's amazing how the 60/70's fabrics are coming back. I've got some in the bottom of my stash box. Alex has decided she wants "portable" cases made out of some of it.

Gorgeous gorgeous bag and isn't Romily clever!

What a gorgeous bag - how stylish to take your lunch in. I love Romily's photos - she is indeed a very clever little one.

I'll be back, love the teapot piece, I'm just going to have to try to be more flexible!

Great idea - looks fabulous - and I agree so much better than the supermarket bag.
