For Ladies That Lunch!

My brother's partner's birthday is coming up and I've been wanting to try out Ayumi's Bento Bag pattern for a while.


It only took me a couple of hours this morning, including piecing the front and back (thank you Fi for the gorgeous scraps).

The cover will have drawstrings, and underneath this there is more lining.
My brother and his partner run their own Estate Agency in England, so I was thinking this would make a great wee lunch bag to take into the office.  And as Ayumi suggested, I made the inner lining from wipeable fabric, just in case of any spills.


I've just to get some cord now to make the drawstrings, and this pressie is ready to be posted across the Irish Sea!

Have a happy Monday!

  5. You family sure is lucky, you make them the best presents. I think you should make one of those for you too, for when you need to bring along lunch or a snack, as it is lovely.

  10. Oooo yes this needs to be on my list to make, so I can reduce the current embarrasment of the 'transformers' lunch box I have been using since I returned to work three weeks ago. Any tips on where I can find the wipeable lining fabric?? x
