Whenever a book gets messed up with spilled food and water my heart skips…esp when it is my daughter’s school books. Being in Kindergarten they don’t allow a separate snack bag. All of her fruits and food are put into the same bag where her books are also kept, and the default school bag doesn’t have a partition. With no choice left I was on the lookout for a pattern which would fit into her bag and could hold the food mess she makes every day. Dolores’ Lunch Tote came just at the right time for Testing and I jumped in to doing it… (With all selfish motive wink emoticon )
Picking the right fabric is always the biggest challenge when making personal bags. The moment I saw the Tea, cups and spoon fabric with Quiltaholics – (https://www.facebook.com/pages/Quiltaholics/1550823148474917?fref=ts )
i knew I wanted that for my little Diva; as she can also double it as a weekend picnic bag and school snack bag. The front and back accents are the best part. I paired it with a Snowflakes red fabric to go with the pink fabric. Do you see something new on this bag….. Yes Yes you noticed it …. My new Label :)…What’s more exciting than the Label and Bag pattern designed by the same person..Yes Yes Rachel Roush from RLR Sewing Creations designed that colorful label for me!!!
Interfacing I have used Collar canvas that available here in India.
The back exterior has a zipper pocket for which i have used a zipper pull with hearts to show all my love for this bag The inside can comfortably accommodate a Tupperware/Signoraware 500ml Water bottle, Circular lunch box and a Napkin. Have made the inside with Water-resistant fabric which is lined with PVC on its back side. I have added a few small bag feet’s to jazz it up!!! Don’t you think its a perfect little girls bag !!! The pattern comes with TWO SIZES and a SAMMY bag for Sandwiches….
