A few days ago, while rearranging my sewing studio, I came across this old curtain an old tenant left behind. I never used it because I was not thrilled by the idea of having a curtain that looks like a carrot. However, I remember thinking the fabric was extraordinary, a beautiful “deep orange” velvet ー of course, I knew I would eventually find an use for it (I also thought about turning it into a blazer, but then again, it’s not like my style).
As you may have noticed by now, I’m a big fan of reusables. And before all this COVID19 reality began, I remember thinking I needed a lunch bag to carry my lunch to work. Immediately I thought of this one by The Organic Company and decided to make my own version of it.
On this post I’ll be giving you the list of things you will need and all steps your need to follow up to the point before you start shaping the bag
Let’s do this!
How to make a reusable lunch bag
What you will need:
- A piece of an used or new fabric, preferably a heavy cotton or any thick fabric you like ( I used velvet )
- For the lining new or recycled fabric, a soft cotton or linen
- A piece of a thick fusing interlining
- Two 23mm snap fasteners
Pieces to cut:
- Bag’s fabric: 1 rectangle: 62 cm x 42 cm
- Belt for closure: 72 cm x 10 cm
- Little strap: 25 cm x 10 cm
- 1 rectangle: 62 cm x 42 cm
