I have been carrying all these containers and whatever else I snack on at work in a plastic bag and every day this week on the walk from the car park to work I've been thinking about the bag I need to make to carry all of this.
So today I made something.
I used fabric from the stash which I love and bought at Addicted to Fabric when I first started sewing about 3 years ago. It's very Japanese cutesy but it always makes me smile.
I used this pattern to help me work out how I was going to make the boxy style. I put batting in it to give it some substance. Once I'd finished the whole thing I took one of the plastic bottoms out of a supermarket shopping bag and put it in the bottom. I had wondered whether I should have done this earlier and sewed it in but am glad it will just sit in the bottom because it will make it heaps easier for cleaning and washing.
The top and the sides are closed with velcro, which is not very glamourous but is functional!
So there we have it.
