I indulged in a sewing day with good friends yesterday.
It was so amazing.
90's music, chatting, peanut butter m&m's, twizzlers, Dr. Pepper,
kid-free time dedicated to sewing.
I made that Esme top I bought the pattern for forever ago.
It 's cute.
I still need to add the buttons.
I'll blog it when I get the buttons on.
A friend made the cutest lunch bag ever.
I fell in love.
Like couldn't do anything till I made this bag kind of love.
So I stayed up till almost 1am to make one!
It is reinforced with interfacing giving it a sturdy shape, is lined, and has a fabulous draw string top!
It could work for a lot of things besides a lunch bag.
I can't wait to make about one hundred more.
Check out the inside!
No raw edges!
A fun lining as a little surprise!
Pink Penguin has an awesome tutorial HERE.
I would cut my drawstring fabric about half an inch wider to have a cleaner seam. She mentions doing that, but not till later in the tutorial...after you have cut your fabric.
I also just used fleece interfacing because it's what I had, and it worked great.
Fun project with a super fun finished product!
