My friend had decided on a lunch bag. She had recently got engaged and with a wedding on the cards and the new year starting she had decided to eat healthier and try and shed a few pounds.(She is doing really well.)
I found a great tutorial by Jennie over at Clover and Violet for a Lunch bag but I didn't like the idea of not being able to wash the bag if the lining was laminated fabric so I started researching alternatives. I finally found PUL fabric which is machine washable up to 60 degrees, is a medical grade fabric and the coating is protected against fungi and bacteria. I bought just plain white so that I could use it for more than one project but there are so many different patterns out there as well.
This is the lunch bag I made for my friend. I use a twin needle when I quilted it with contrasting treads.
Now the reason I am telling you all this is because I decided to scale it down to make one for a little girl who's 3rd birthday party it is tomorrow.
Her favourite colour is yellow, she likes fairy's and sparkly things. What do you think?
|Even the bottom has fairy's!|
|Inside - not much to see but as I took a photo I thought I would share!|
I have even managed a bit of recycling. If you look closely you can see the zip is one that was part of my post Recycle.
