New Lunch Bag For My Wraps

It all started with my friend asking me if I could make reusable sandwich bags.  Now I am addicted to them!  I love how great they work and not having to pull out Ziploc bags in the morning is awesome.  I haven't used one since school started.  Then my cousin asked if I could make a lunch bag to match her sandwich bags and wraps.  I found this great free pattern at The Long Thread.  It was so easy to follow and was actually similar to the box totes I make.  I used canvas as the main fabric and laminated cotton for the sides and insides.  The batting I used is insulated batting and it has a magnetic snap.  It turned out so cute.  I am going to embroider my cousin's name on it tomorrow.  I will post pictures then too.  I definitely need to make one for myself now. 


Another cute lunch bag I made for a friend's daughter!


  1. What fabric are you using for you sandwich bags? I like the idea of reuseable bags. You can find me at

    1. Hi Lisa!
      I love my sandwich bags and haven't used a ziplock bag since school has started! The sandwich bags I am using right now have cotton fabric for the outside and are lined with rip stop nylon. They work great and are easy to wash. I have also used the laminated cotton bags too. Those are easy to make. Have fun getting into reusable bags!
