A lunch box is something that was on my "to sew" list this month that just didn't get checked off. Just in case you still have time, here is a list of lunch box tutorials that should inspire you to whip up a little something homemade for your school kids. Of course, when making a lunch bag or snack bags for your kids, be mindful that these are for food. Stay away from fabrics that are not safe for food.
Then make yourself an ice pack, a cute ice pack cover, a few napkins, maybe a sandwich wrap, a sandwich wrap & mat, or snack bag and you're good! But please (PLEASE) don't use oil cloth, PUL or other fabrics that aren't supposed to be against your child's food. I say, who cares if it doesn't wipe clean, just wash it!
Have you made a lunch bag or box? Did you create your own pattern or use one you found?
