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.
A tutorial for these should be up in a few days :)
