Of course, you're not here for the kids, but for the sewing, right? Have you seen the tutorial from a Lemon Squeezy Home for a lunch bag? It is just so cute! I made one for Nathan as he takes his lunch this year. I made a couple of modifications so that there are two interior pockets to hold ice packs. Then I tried out iron-on vinyl for the first time ever. Pleasant surprise! It makes the cloth quite similar to oil cloth. It's not too expensive either! I used it inside and out and even on the bias tape so that the whole bag is wipeable (oilcloth is not washable.)
And in his favorite fabrics: John Deere outside and Farmall inside.
Oh last but not least, I got a note today that strikeoffs are on their way!
