Add laminated cotton, oilcloth, nylon or vinyl to your fabric stash and you'll be able to sew your way through the 25 beautiful - yet functional - sacks and wraps featured in Lunch Bags! These projects offer a greener alternative to clingfilm because they can be washed and re-used, and you can say goodbye to plastic bags in real style. Any fabric you like can be used on the outside of such items as Cheryl B Steighner's reusable sandwich wrap, Quenna Lee's zipper-top lunch bag, and Rebecca and Karen Garcia's insulated lunch tote, as long as you use something waterproof on the inside. Many designs can be adapted so you can make items to contain your kids' packed lunches and also for the office executive in your life, and you can also turn them into different kinds of bags by varying the fabric. The whole book just makes you want to head out for a picnic right now! http://mumtopia.blogspot.co.uk/2014/02/3-ways-to-put-some-zing-into-your-sewing.html

Each bag comes with its own sewing instructions and in the back of the book you will find instructions for two different methods of corner construction.
