My dear friend Betty is a librarian who spends her days helping patrons research history and genealogy. Betty also craves style and deserves a sophisticated lunch sack that's sized for a grown-up lunch, so I created this one for her that she would be happy to take with her to work. This business worthy lunch sack features briefcase style handles and a super easy, no-fail zipper closure. It's insulated and sized to hold a very respectably sized lunch and yet sews up quick. Don't forget to pack chocolate for desert! Easy to follow instructions accompany lots of clear photographs to guide you through construction. It's lined with Insul-Bright to keep your food cold till lunchtime. Made in a bright fabric, it'll keep you smiling all day! BASIC SKILLS NECESSARY A great project to learn an easy way to install a zipper. I include detailed instructions with photos to illustrate every step. It's easy! SIZING / FINISHED MEASUREMENTS 8.75" wide by 9.5" tall by 4" deep (excluding handles).

Supplies Needed

  • You'll need 1/2 yard each of the exterior and lining fabric (you can also use two fat quarters for each 1/2 yard piece required) You'll also need 1/2 yard of insulating batting, such as Insul-Brite, a 16" or longer zipper, and matching thread.
  • You'll need a zipper foot for your machine.

Some of my earliest memories involve needle and thread, sewing with my mom. I don't think I've ever lost a sense of wonder that happens through the creative process. My passion continues to be textiles. I love sewing and drafting fun projects that bring both beauty and function to your life. Come create with me!
