A while back I received a lovely bundle of fabric from Stay Home Fabrics, and I used it to make a purse, glasses case, key fobs and a cup cozy. The fabric is Beyond the Backyard by Jane Farnham for Camelot Fabrics (a Canadian company).
I still had a bit left, and spring is finally here, so I decided to make another insulated lunchbag with it. I followed my own tutorial, but changed up a few things. I used a different method to box the corners, and I tried tapering the top a bit. I love how easy it is to make small changes and get different results. I also made my own straps instead of using webbing. It's a nice way to use a coordinate and gives the bag a more sophisticated look - moms pack lunches for themselves too!
You can find the tutorial by clicking here. Beyond the Backyard is such a versatile collection. It's so happy and the tossed print has bees! I love fabric with bees!
You can pick up your own Beyond the Backyard bundle at Stay Home Fabrics. While you're there, check out some of the exciting new items in store: Minky, Fusible fleece, and insulbrite (perfect for lunchbags) are all back in stock; Cloud 9 organic cotton, and Tula Pink Elizabeth are now available, as well as Babyville Boutique and precuts.
I'd love to hear if you've made a lunchbag from my tutorial yet, or if you have any questions about it.
