1/2 yard of 2 fabrics, each one wider than 35 inches
1 yard or ribbon or other strong material for a strap
2 inches of velcro or similar closure material
How to make it: (All seams should be 5/8 of an inch)
On a large piece of of paper draw a 7inch by 35 inch rectangle and a 6 inch by 11 inch rectangle.
Cut one 7 x 35 inxh rectangle from each fabric and two 6 by 11 inch rectangles from each fabric.
Fold Each long piece so that you have a J or a backwards J (Depending how you look at it) that are so that the the sides it forms are 11 inches, 6 inches and 18 inches
Pin the small rectangles, right sides together into the folds so that there is a 7 inch flap at one end of each big piece and sew. Repeat on the other side of rectangle so that the same piece is the flap. Repeat on the second fabric and sew.
Turn the second fabric right side out so that the right sides of each “bag” are together and all of the edges meet.
Sew, leaving an opening at the top.
Turn the bags right side out.
Place the velcro on the bag so that it closes.
Now you have a lunch bag you can use every day at school. It’s washable too!
