my dear husband doesn’t have many sewing requests, but in this case i had been on a bit of a sewing hiatus, and he had an immediate one: PLEEEEASE make the kids a new lunch bag for daycare. while the faux bois oilcloth lunch sack i made them was still functional, it was getting smelly from spilled milk and isn’t washable. i once again pulled up calico’s lunch sack tutorial but made it in canvas ikea fabric, a lot bigger since the bag needs to hold food for both kids now, and added a little something extra…
PAC-MAN AND MS. PAC-MAN APPLIQUE! i was about to applique a lower-case E and an O for their initals, but once i started cutting out the circles i suddenly thought of pac-man and thought that would be PERFECT to represent a hungry little girl and little boy. i want a lunch sack that makes me smile.
i topstitched around all edges, including the bottom, to make it stand up a little better. i should have lined it, but i was kind of lazy. it just needs to get their lunches from point A to point B anyway, which takes about 10 minutes.
happy husband, giggling mama, well-fed kids. mission accomplished.
