I’ve been a little busy trying to get some new items added to my Etsy shop. I wanted to do something quick yet small enough that it won’t take me hours just to make one item. With the summer months ahead, (not sure when that will be since we’re having snow in May…ughhh), I’m thinking something cute and functional for kids to use that will be perfect for summer. Ahhhh a lunch tote!
My son loves to munch on items while we’re out and about so having something handy to store his food items (since he is extremely picky), I figured having a small travel lunch tote would be perfect.
Although there are many patterns out there on making lunch bags, I stumbled across one made by Asako of piggledee. The pattern is so easy and quick that I’m able to get at most 2 done within an hour…okay maybe an hour and 15 mins tops! The lunch tote is simple yet functional and must I say cute for your little one. What drew me to this pattern was the cute fabrics that she uses to make her items. She uses Japanese prints that are absolutely gorgeous. One of these days I will take a leap and purchase some Japanese fabric…but some come with a price tag that I’m not ready to pay at this time. One day…
Anyway, I’ve made a few lunch totes that are ‘ready-to-ship’ and available in my shop if you are looking for a cute lunch tote for either yourself or little one. These are just a few of the ones that I’ve made but more are coming. I can customize it by making it larger if you desire or personalize it by monogramming/embroidering on the bag. Like the quilted look? I can do that too.
Remember to head on over to piggledee if you want to purchase the pattern to make for yourself, a friend, child, etc. They’re addictive to make!!
