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!

    i made some reusable snack bags…i didn’t use a pattern, and they are certainly not perfect…but they worked and they actually came BACK home after her first day of school! Success!

    Obviously this page has been around a while but I thought you would like to know that people are still looking at it and enjoying it. I have a “thing” about the perfect lunch bag and am going to try at lest two of the patterns here. Thanks!
