Do you want to win some oilcloth and an oilcloth sewing book?? Enter my giveaway here.
This project has been planned for a long time and I just finished it two weeks ago! For the longest time I was using a lunch box that I had bought in 2006 to take my lunch to work. Nothing special and it worked just fine, but then it broke.
So I am carrying my lunch in style! I got the basic shape from this Skip to My Lou tutorial, but I added a liner and straps and made it a lot bigger so I can carry my rectangle pyrex.
I also sewed it together differently so that I could make the sides a different color from the front and back.
For the most part I didn't have difficulty sewing the oilcloth- I set my stitch length to 5.0 and sailed through. But then came time to sew the liner in and it bunched a bit- you can see it at the top. Not a craft fail, but definitely not as good as I want it to be. If I do this again I will try and use some of the tricks ModernJune has on her website.
If there is enough interest I can post a tutorial for the lunch tote to show the alterations I made to the original tutorial.
Linking up to some of these great parties!!
Thanks so much for stopping by!!
