Leather Lunch Bag Tutorial
Raise your hand if one of your New Year’s Resolutions was to eat healthier!There is a new product I recently learned about available at Walmart. Campbell’s Well Yes!™ Soup.
it can help you stay on track for a new you in 2017. Campbell’s Well Yes!™ Soup is made with nutritious ingredients, no artificial colors, flavors or ingredients. I picked up a couple cans on a recent trip to Walmart.
I’ve always enjoyed eating soup as part of my lunch. When I worked in an office I would bring cans of soup with me to eat on my break. It’s easy enough to keep a bowl and a spoon in your desk, then all you have to do is grab a can of soup on your way out the door in the morning.
For today’s tutorial I am going to show you how to sew a cute, chic lunch bag to bring your soup and other snacks with you to work.
I used faux alligator fabric from the fabric section at Walmart to make this super simple lunch bag. It’s a great beginner project for anyone who is learning how to sew.
This bag is approximately 12 inches tall by 12 inches wide and 4 inches deep.
- ½ yard of faux alligator fabric
- All-purpose black thread
- Sewing machine
- Sewing pins
For the body of the bag:
Begin by cutting the fabric into two large rectangles 17 x 15
Pin and sew up the sides leaving a 1 inch hem.
To make the corners, pinch the two bottom corners and pull them out. Pin them flat and sew across the corner approximately 2 inches from the tip.
Hem the top edge of the bag about one inch.
For the handles:
Cut four pieces of fabric approx.18 long by 3. 5 inches wide.
Put the right sides together and sew the edges together with a half inch seam
Pin the ends of the handles to the inside of the bag and sew over your hem stitch again, attaching the handles to the bag.
Flip inside out and fill with soup and other snacks to take with you to work.
