All -American Lunch Bag!

All in good humor, I was inspired to make a lunch bag when I came across some McDonald's fabric hanging out in my stash! This result was not really my intent when I bookmarked the Lunch Box Tutorial at Pink Penguin ages ago, but a fun Christmas gift for sure!
The pattern is modified a bit - I quilted some denim to make a sturdy base.
Then, I couldn't resist doubling-up the handles to make the golden arches!
I love the drawstring coverlet!
The Bag It Challenge runs until December 14th - plenty of time to hop aboard, make some bags and enter for a chance at prizes! I am inspired by Patty to make a Jewelry Roll, and next week she will post a tutorial for Triangle Bags that sound pretty tempting too.

  2. That's adorable - the McDonalds fabric is a hoot! I have one in flamingo fabric that a friend made me from the same tutorial :)

  3. This made me laugh. I love it! I work in a health food store so I'd have to hide it if it was mine....but then again most of my co workers have a good sense of irony.

  6. Heidi, that's just too cute and too clever! Isn't it fun to take a pattern and give it your own little twist? Someone at McDonalds corporate offices should see this!

  7. Details like your double golden arch handles make projects like this so fantastic. Someone will surely be amused to receive this as a gift.
