This lunch bag is easy to make and durable. It makes great use of Kool-Jammer or Capri Sun pouches.
Stella this is so cool, even better than a purse. You are so creative and the instructions and pictures are really good. suzen
Excellent project. Maybe you should submit it to Carol Duvall for her craft show on HGTV cable.
This is the neatest idea!
and Thank you for such good illustrations.
I need pictures to be able to do projects like this
and this is perfect!
I can't wait to make one of these, too cute. What are you doing to cover the little punched straw holes, after drinking the juice? Are people cutting the bottoms out of the juice and not drinking from them? I want to recycle the used ones my kids love drinking from. Any suggestions that will stay when bag gets wet? I thought about cutting the bag down past the straw hole but it would not look as nice. Thanks
Editor's note: Once the pouches are empty (yes use the ones that the kids have emptied) use an x-acto knife to slit the bottom of the juice pouch. Clean the inside of each pouch with hot soapy water and let dry.
I guess I did not make myself clear. What I need to know is - the hole where the straw goes - do you leave the hole punched out or can you seal in some way so that liquids do not enter into the bag from the outside. Thanks.
Editor's Note: Before you start sewing them together you could stitch or glue near the holes so water cannot get in there. In any case, I doubt that much water could get in there unless you submerged the finish bag in water.
I've mixed art with thriftiness to create some new designs for lunch bags. See photos.
In hindsight, I think it would have been easier to put the velcro on earlier on in the process when things were still more flat. Would have saved a lot of trouble. Has anyone else done that?
What type of thread to you use? Just regular or synthetic?
Have you tried with coffee bags? It's wonderful.
Thank You for your great idea, very original, your pictures and instructions are great, you are very creative and a recycle queen.
Thank You for the inspiration.
Some of your pictures show the lunchbag with a handle. How do you put on the handle?
Editor's Note: No handle in this project, it just folds over like a paper sack.
