 The same oilcloth that covers your kitchen table can transport your children's lunches -- or your own -- in leak-free style. These reusable bags will cut back on waste since they can simply be washed with a damp sponge (oilcloth is not washing-machine safe). Use a single print for the whole bag, or cut out complementary patterns or solid colors for side panels. You can attach small Velcro tabs to hold the bags closed, or clip the tops with colorful wooden clothespins.


 Lunch Bag How-To

Cut main piece 75cm by 20cm and two side panels, each 31cm by 13cm.
Fold long panel, inside out, into U shape with 13cm bottom.

 Make 1/2cm cut at bottom corners of side and middle pieces so bag folds smoothly. Sew-in side panels, leaving 1/2cm inseam allowance.

 Turn right side out and top-stitch all around, 1/2cm from edge.
