spider man lunchbox (and giveaway!)

as you know, right around Halloween, O got super mega obsessed with Spider Man.  barely a day has gone by that he hasn’t worn (or requested to wear) his hoodie – that superhero love that so many little guys seem to have has been awakened.

so when my new sponsor, Virginia of the lovely Gingercake Patterns, asked me if I’d join her holiday pattern tour, i thought there couldn’t be anything much more perfect than making this fella his own Spider Man lunch box!

this is Gingercake’s Love Your Lunch Box pattern.  Gingercake first came to my attention last year when Gail made this adorable one for her little gal.  it’s the perfect size to hold lunches for kids to carry, and i love the idea of customizing the fabrics to what your kid is into, since lunch boxes inevitably get gross and need to be replaced pretty regularly anyway.

in O’s case, what he’s into right now is spiders (and webs).

the “web” fabric is topo in navy from architextures by Carolyn Friedlander, one of my all time favorite fabric lines.  so cool, so versatile.  i think it’s is supposed to suggest elevation lines on a topographical map, but it works as a web too, right?  then i stuck a little spider appliqué on there.

the inside is a sturdy seersucker/ticking i’ve used a few times.  i thought it could be more washable than laminated cotton (either is suggested in the pattern).  it was clear and quick sew, though probably not a super beginner project just because it gets tricky sewing a gusset around tight curves, but no biggie if you’ve made some things.

he really does love it!  he even wanted to pack his own lunch, he was so excited.

and i’m pumped to have a go-to lunchbox pattern that i can make again a year from now with whatever his obsession is then.

    Oh! How fantastic! I have been looking for a good lunchbox pattern for exactly the reason you stated. They get unbelievably gross! I tried making a pattern for this myself but I wasn’t that happy with how it came out. Yours is so perfect. I might have to try this one.

    I would love to make the Getaway Duffle. I’ve been looking for an overnight bag pattern for a while. Love your lunchbox! My husbands lunch box just broke and I would love to make him a new one (enlarged x10 of course)

  4. AmyL says:

  5. Lee says:

    I actually love the lunch box pattern, and yours is super nice! But the polar penquin is adorable and that would be a great holiday gift item ! thanks!

    love your spidey lunchbox! great idea to customize it with an applique. this is such a great pattern to have on hand – we get soooo much use out of ours! in fact it’s probably time for a new one 🙂

    I would have to be a bit on the practical side and say that the get-away bag is my favorite. I made one for each my girls for Christmas last year and they absolutely love them.

  9. Rachel says:

    I’ve got an elephant lover too, I might just have to get Lucky and make him one! What a great lunch bag, and that print is my favourite in the line. I have some scraps of it saved for something special:) Thanks for the giveaway!

    I love this pattern as well. It’s my first Gingercake’s pattern. I made my girls lunch boxes for school this year and used PUL for the inside so it just wipes out. You are right about it not being a super beginner project but after 34 months of school they still look like new.
