Reusable Lunch Bag

Reusable Lunch Bag

What could be more fun and eco friendly than packing a lunch in our Reusable Lunch Bag? These highly functional cuties are fashioned after the old fashioned, standard brown lunch bag, with a touch of "green"! They are easy to make, too. A couple of hours on the applique and an hour at the sewing machine, and you’ll have Mother Earth sending you a thank you note!

I used the Slumbering Owl Applique Block, but because they are easy, make several with different appliques. They will also make great gifts and easy to design for a boy or a girl. Never too early to start thinking about next Christmas, right?

Make sure to make these out of washable fabrics, though, since they will need to be washed occasionally. And try different fabrics and designs. A great project for repurposing old clothes!

Look for the directions in the FREE patterns. Enjoy! 



  1. I just got a sewing machine for Christmas. All I’ve done so far is straight lines! Is this really easy for a beginner? It doesn’t look easy to me? I’ve got a real problem dealing with failure so I don’t want to try it if I shouldn’t yet LOL! I’d like to give this a try if you think a beginner could.

    1. I think you can do it! These are all straight lines. The hardest part is the mitered corners…getting everything lined up and marked. But I really think if you take it step by step, and look at the photos, you’ll be fine. If you get stuck or have any questions, just ask! Good luck 🙂
