New school year = New lunch bags

Along with new school supplies (and just a few new outfits), the girls were clamoring for new lunch bags.  They liked their old ones, but wanted to tweak the design (the apple does not fall far from the tree).  It needed to be larger to fit these larger sandwich boxes and have a zippered closure.

They have the same denim bottom for durability and stain resistance (I think school yards are scuzzy) and a single hand/shoulder strap.  I thought my oldest would have outgrown these "cutesy" bags, but she carries it proudly to middle school.  The best part is they are machine washable and dryable...normal settings.

It is lined with a sweet apple print.  It's roomier enough for everything and even their thermos.
A tutorial for these should be up in a few days :)

Nobody (non female, at least :P ) it's too grown up for these cuties. Really nice!

I really like these. The fabric is great! My sister has been asking me if I could make her a lunch bag and this would be perfect. I haven't been able to find a pattern anywhere so I'll be watching for the tutorial.
