lunch kit

My mind is in "back to school" mode, so I guess it makes sense that my latest refashion falls under that category too. This reusable lunch kit is designed to help us use fewer plastic baggies in our lunches this year. And because it is made from an
old bed sheet, a thrifted shirt, and sewing scraps, it is a lot cheaper than buying one from the store!
The sandwich wraps/place mats are a very quick and easy
refashion (it took me less than 20 minutes to make four) using gallon size ziploc bags as a template for the fabric (cut from a bed sheet). I finished the edges using my serger, and then simply added the velcro to the corners, similar to this tutorial.
The snack sack was made from fabric scraps, a little velcro, and some embroidery on the front.
During one of my many thrifting adventures I found a linen shirt that was too small and that's what I used for the lunch bag. I made a few more of these bags (with nicer drawstrings) as bread bags for friends.
For my next kit, I will try to coordinate the fabrics a little better, but this will do for now.

The beach seemed like a great place to try out our new lunch kit today.
