Lunchy Lunch aka Pinspiration numero – sesenta y seis

I was looking around for things to make for Birthdays and Christmas last year and found this lunch bag.  I remembered that my SIL-C had been looking for a new one since her Thirty-One one snagged a while ago.  lunch-bag-129-sewmamasew

I thought I took more photos of the process of making the lunch bag but I guess I didn’t.  This is the only one that I have.

A photo of the inside.  I wanted to show the inside because I used Pellon’s Vinyl Fuse on the quilting cotton to make it wipeable.

There are pockets on the outside.

The exterior is a Cotton & Steel Canvas, Metallic Arrows Green, that I’ve had in my stash for a while now.  I got it on sale from Craftsy.  The grey is a Linen from Joann’s.  The interior is a quilting cotton from Riley Blake, Geekly Chic Cassette Tapes Music Retro on White, and the batting is Insul-Bright.  Insul-Bright is a material that keeps things cold or keeps things warm.

I was a tad bit intimidated to make this lunch bag.  It has a few techniques that I had not tried before but the tutorial was very well written and sewing this lunch bag was a breeze.

My SIL-C even gave me some feedback saying that it works perfectly and fits all her lunch containers.  It even fits her pill box perfectly, which the other one did not.  So thumbs up all around!!

Double Zip Wallet

When Noodlehead announced her book would be dropping I decided that I needed it right away and purchased it from Amazon.  It arrived the same day as it’s release and I jumped into it.  You can get a signed copy here.

As soon as I saw the double zip wallet I knew I had to make it.  I made one as a tester and I’m so glad I did because I learned a lot from them.

Here I’m starting on my second one.  This one has its interior fused with Pellon’s vinyl fuse.  (Super easy and super fun to apply.)

I’m not sure what this is all about.  I think it’s supposed to be how I folded the straps on the inside for when I was sewing it closed. I don’t know, but it’s fun to see, ya?

That’s got to be what it was because here is a different shot of the same thing, along with my tag placement.

And here it is all sewn together.  I made the interior fabric vinyl-fused since I was planning on wearing it to Disneyland and wanted to make sure water couldn’t get through the whole wallet/bag.

It turned out pretty good and useful, however, I have since added some parachute clips so that it is easier and faster to remove if needed.  All in all, though, I really like that it’s big enough to carry the essentials but small enough to not be in the way.
