Pattern Description:

Here is a great little insulated lunch sack for Johnny to carry his sandwich to school - or in a different fabric, for you to carry yours to work. It's insulated with Insul-bright(r) and lined with Therm-O-Web(r) iron-on vinyl. Cool things stay cool, and spills wipe right up. It's also completely washable, so you can make two and always have a fresh one. The pattern includes two sizes of lunch sack. The small sack will hold a sandwich and bag of chips, or a standard 2 cup square food storage container. The larger bag will hold 2 sandwiches, chips, fruit, etc.

Sizing / Finished Measurements:

  • Small 7 inches wide x 3 inches deep x 9 inches tall
  • Large 9 inches wide x 5 inches deep x 11 inches tall


  • Rotary cutting tools (self healing mat, rotary cutter, quilter's ruler) or Fabric Shears
  • Sewing machine with standard presser foot and ability to sew straight forward and back - no fancy stitching required.
  • Seam ripper, thread clipper or embroidery scissors, sewing gauge or ruler.
  • Fabric markers (I prefer washout)
  • Newspaper or a roll of butcher paper if you are going to make pattern pieces and cut with scissors
  • Fabric amount: 3/4 yard for outer and lining
