I was in desperate need of a new lunch bag to bring to work. I have been looking for months and just couldn't find anything that I thought would fit my needs. So I decided to make myself a lunch tote. Now I can fit everything that I need and more into my lunch bag.
I used my Easy Teacher Tote Tutorial, but increased the size of the bag to make it roomier.
Here are the measurements I used:
4 Pocket Pieces- 8" x 9"
2 Exterior Pieces (home dec fabric)- 18" x 13.5"
2 Bottom Pieces (canvas)- 18" x 6"
2 Lining Pieces (canvas)- 18" x 19"
2 Pieces of Insul-Bright- 18" x 19"
I added a loop of elastic and button to keep everything inside cold and secure. When I boxed the corners, I measured in 4 inches instead of 2 inches to make the bag wider at the bottom.
Next time I might add a zipper and make the straps longer, but overall I am happy with the way it turned out.
