Add laminated cotton, oilcloth, nylon or vinyl to your fabric stash and you'll be able to sew your way through the 25 beautiful - yet functional - sacks and wraps featured in Lunch Bags! These projects offer a greener alternative to clingfilm because they can be washed and re-used, and you can say goodbye to plastic bags in real style. Any fabric you like can be used on the outside of such items as Cheryl B Steighner's reusable sandwich wrap, Quenna Lee's zipper-top lunch bag, and Rebecca and Karen Garcia's insulated lunch tote, as long as you use something waterproof on the inside. Many designs can be adapted so you can make items to contain your kids' packed lunches and also for the office executive in your life, and you can also turn them into different kinds of bags by varying the fabric. The whole book just makes you want to head out for a picnic right now! http://mumtopia.blogspot.co.uk/2014/02/3-ways-to-put-some-zing-into-your-sewing.html * Mumtopia * Dec 10

You'll never use a brown paper bag again once you've taken a peak at the dozens of creative lunch-toting options presented in this book. Whether you're looking to create a basic lunch sack, an eco-friendly sandwich wrap, or a picnic-sized tote, you'll find what you're looking for. Materials range from cotton fabric to denim, lace, and even plastic juice pouches. Nifty details like water bottle holders make these bags the perfect combination of adorable and functional, ideal for toting everything from wine bottles to bento boxes. What better way to combine your love of sewing, good food, and a green lifestyle? * International Quilt Festival Magazine * Nov 10

Bags, bags, bags, can a girl ever have too many bags? Lunch Bags! Offers more than just lunch bags. Within this little book you will find 25 handmade sacks and wraps to sew using quick and basic sewing techniques. In addition to charming lunch bags you will also find instructions to create several different sandwich wraps that will go a long way to- ward keeping plastic wrap out of the landfills. I will be making the "Bicycle Lunch Bag" which has handles that are designed to go over your bike's handlebars repositioned to be used as a carrying handle once you reach your destination. Each bag comes with it's own sewing instructions and in the back of the book you will find instructions for two different methods of corner construction. * Applique Society, The *
