Sew, What’s for Lunch?

Those crafty divas over at Sew Mama Sew are sewing up some Lunch Bags for Day 4 of Handmade Holidays!

I only wish I had some oilcloth or that cool Laminated Cotton from Michael Miller on hand as I’d love to make this AWESOME Oilcloth Lunch Bag by Tumbling Blocks:


Perhaps I’ll dig out that iron-on vinyl I had stuffed away somewhere in my sewing room and attempt the above lunch bag.  Yep…that’s what I’ll do!

Now get crafting!



  1. You know, this idea is really cool – the handmade holidays list you came up with. Even I should be able to do a few of them. 🙂 Love the Michael Miller fabrics. I’ve got some iron on vinyl too. Hmmm. Ideas are churning.

  2. Lisa- is there a good place online to find a pattern for lounge pants? I have around 13 nieces and nephews and would really love to give this a try. Love your site! I link all my friends to you. You’re a fun lady to follow.

  3. Wish I could say it was my idea…credit goes to Sew Mama Sew for all their inspiration and motivation!
