Oilcloth Lunch Bag Tutorial

Oilcloth Lunch Bag Tutorial

A lot of hope rests in this little lunch bag:

    healthier lunches
    savings of dollars
    thinner thighs
    never having to eat the cafeteria’s sloppy joe again
    etc.



The first time I saw oilcloth, it was in a kids catalog, maybe Magic Cabin or something. A large piece of it had been edged and they were using it as an under-highchair splat mat. I thought it was pretty awesome, but we were beyond the age where we needed a splat mat. It’s taken me this long to realize that you can make things other than splat mats out of oilcloth.
Make Your Sack Lunch, a lunch bag tutorial
You will need:

    1/4 yard (not fat) oilcloth. I got mine at Sew Mama Sew. Modern oilcloth is pretty much like vinyl and not oiled cloth
    1/4 yard thin batting
    1/4 yard other plastic fabric for lining. I used a shower curtain because I had it left over from making sit-upons.
    3.5 in piece of velcro

EDIT – I thought I’d respond to a couple questions I got from people:
The oilcloth can be a bit of a challenge to sew, so you will probably be wrestling the material in your machine a bit more than you would with quilters’ cotton. You can line the bag with something other than vinyl. The vinyl was what I had handy, and it is easily wipeable, so that’s what I opted for. This pattern would also work for sturdy, non-plastic materials, like canvas. Hope you’re enjoying this and making some awesome lunch bags!

Kettle Handle Potholder Tutorial

Kettle Handle Potholder Tutorial

Last year I made kettle handle holder for my knitting buddies, and these potholders might actually be the thing I make that is most requested by family and friends. I used to think that people wanted it just for the cute factor. They would say they burned their hands on their kettles, but I didn’t quite believe them. That was before I got my new stove.

Furoshiki Handbag Tutorial

Furoshiki are square wrapping cloths that were traditionally used in Japan to carry things. There are hundreds of ways to wrap and tie a furoshiki and they come in all sizes and patterns. Although they aren’t used as prolifically as they used to be (curse the invention of the plastic bag!), they can still be found and are coming back into fashion as more focus is being placed on the environment.
