Quick Bag (nablopomo)

I wanted to make a clear bag to bring to work. 
One that I didn't really care much about for my water, lunch, etc.
I had enough scrap vinyl, saved from comforter and sheet packaging. 
Even from the packaging of a car seat!

So I randomly found some fabric, and started putting the bag together.
I traced the pattern to the vinyl with a sharpie marker. Even the dart.
 (Later, I will kick myself in the butt for doing that.)
See that? Purple sharpie?

Anyway, I used the outside fabric in double layers so that you would see the back of the fabric
from the inside.

How cute is that for my lunch? I had to bias trim all the edges, and I loved using the red fabric.
Makes it kind of nautical, and cheery, and very me.
Inside seams are serged.

This is the back, so when I walk around I can put this to the outside and no one sees my 

Fun right?


  1. What a fabulous idea. Just today my man and I were searching for a lunchbox for him to take his lunch to work with him. I don't think this is quite manly enough for his taste, but its a great idea. It's so much easier to eat healthy if you pack your own lunch (and cheaper too). Great job.

  2. Very cute! Just FYI, rubbing alcohol will take the Sharpie off. Probably a good idea to test it on a scrap of the plastic first, but it should be fine.

    1. Thanks for that tip! I'll have to remember that for future projects.
