throwback thursday {a lunchbag}

It’s Thursday again and time to pull from the archives. This post back from 2009 is probably one of my favorite tutorials and finds on the web. I love this pattern and it always turns out super cute. So for all of you looking for a new lunchbag as school ramps up…this is a great one!

I made this lunch bag from Skip to My Lou a while back for my husband and have been wanting to do one for myself since I am taking my lunch somewhere again.

Making this pattern again made me realize how super easy it is and how much fun you could have with it. The first time I used iron-on vinyl for the inside and outside and it was a booger to sew. It has also gotten wet and all the vinyl has unattached and I’m not sure how to salvage it.

That said, I was out of vinyl this time so I had to figure out another solution. I ended up heat’n bonding 2 fabrics together to give it some stiffness and I LOVE how it turned out!
