New Lunch Bag

The bag in this post is the one I usually carry my lunch in. It's cute. I like it. It was one of the first things I made when I started learning to sew.

I decided yesterday that I needed a new lunch bag. Something a little bit bigger with a wider bottom. I had some fabric left over from when I made this purse and this is what I came up with.I couldn't be bothered with a pattern so I sorta made it up as I went along and now of course, I wish I'd have taken the extra time. The lining is very floppy and I put in a cardboard bottom...duh...what if I want to wash it?? I was going for a deliberately off center design on the pocket, but it's not enough off center to look deliberate. Wow. I really am my own worst critic, huh. Anyhow I may take it apart entirely and redo it OR I may use it until it needs to be washed and then redo it.

Note to self...use a pattern next time.

Still, it DOES have tiny robots all over it! And I suppose that's all that a girl needs in a lunch bag, really.

Why would you even think you needed a pattern?? This is so cute and it looks great. I love that fabric! You should use it until it needs to be washed and then re-do it.
