The Waste Free Lunch Bag

Lunch bag sewing pattern

This is a pattern designed to make your lunch experience more stylish and to help reduce waste. No more trash to throw away after your lunch. Have you noticed how it really adds up? This is how you can start to make a difference!

I designed this bag for my 9 year old niece who is recycling maniac! She already had a bag she brought to school but wanted one that hold her water bottle, sandwich and snack without everything getting all smooshed together. This bag does it all! It is meant to hold a sandwich, a snack bag, a small water bottle or drink, an apple, & a small yogurt. Obviously you can change all of this to fit your own lunch diet or your child's.

The finished bag measures 9.5" tall by 9" wide when full of lunch. It has a large interior pocket that fits a standard size snack bag. There is a divider in the middle to keep thing organized . A velcro flap closure keeps everything closed. Materials needed are cotton fabrics, insulbrite batting (for insulation to keep that lunch cold or hot!), fusible interfacing, velcro & thread.

The color and fabric combination choices are endless! You could also just use this bag as a purse and use the knowledge you gain from making this to make larger and smaller bags, add extra pockets, and custom fit it to your needs.
