Pattern Description:

THIS IS AN ECO-FRIENDLY, NO-PATTERN-PIECE PATTERN. All pieces are measured and cut according to the included measurements.

Don't head out for the day without your Going to Lunch Bag! This stylish reusable lunch tote provides perfect food storage for a day at school or work. A traditional roll-down top stands open when it's rolled up to make filling the bag quick and easy, while double handles make this lunch bag simple to grab and go. A layer of fusible fleece or insulating fabric in the body gives it structure and helps keep your foods cold longer. Replace the inner cotton layer with rip-stop nylon, and you'll make the inside waterproof while keeping it food safe and washable! The finished size of this bag is 7" wide X 4" deep, and 12" tall open, 10" tall closed.
