We are coming to the last few days of summer vacation, and I must admit I’m feeling nostalgic for the days when we still had a long, hot summer ahead of us. I think the kids are, in some ways, starting to feel ready to get back to school, but I’m feeling a little sad! To keep myself occupied, I’m trying to craft my way to school preparedness, starting with this vinyl, reusable lunch bag.I used this pattern by Pretty Prudent, with a couple of modifications. Firstly, I used a vinyl material with a wipedown wrong side. A quick rinse under a tap should keep this lunch bag clean inside and out. Second, I used Velcro for the seal, instead of a button or tie. Velcro is so easy for small fingers to manage, and I really like how you can roll down the top edges to make a neat closure and avoid spillages. The Rotary Cutter and Ruler Combo worked a treat on this vinyl.And I used my Softgrip® Pinking Shears to finish the seam allowance.To attach the Velcro, I sewed one side to the top edge of the bag and the other piece a few inches down from the top edge on the opposite side.If you liked this idea, you might also like these Reusable Snack Bags too!
