Did I mention I was obsessed?

Here is my lunch bag. I made it with a stiff bottom 5 inches so things would be less likely to be squished (and I made it a bit bigger as well). Still lined with PUL for water proofness (is that a word?) and with only one sandwich wrap. But I thought it turned out cute.

Here is Alex's. The Kanji for FAST was a gift from a friend, and I thought it fit perfect. Alex loves it actually, and the matching wraps have already been used, just like Cyan's.


There isn't much more happiness and zen than in finding something you are good at, that you love to make, and for it to be loved, used, and practical on top of all that.

I'll put an order in for four of them, just as soon as you are ready to start taking them... (orders that is!)

I'm really impressed, and LOVE that there isn't a plastic sandwich baggie in sight!

I am ordering more PUL tomorrow. Then I will let all know about when I can get some done. I have two quilt orders I have to finish first, but I have a sewing night planned for Thursday and will of course be thinking of ideas and ya'll. ;)

I have been trying to figure out a good lunch bag design for a while... what is PUL?

I started drafting lunch bags and sandwich wraps last month but I didn't know what waterproofing material is the safest on food. Do you put the PUL in contact with the food or between layers of cotton? I guess it doesn't make a big difference as long as the things don't get heated.
Great blog, I should visit more often!
