I’m seeing some lunch sacks pop up, and they are looking great! After I washed the lunch bag I made, the heavy duty stabilizer seemed to lose it’s stabilizing abilities and so mine is more floppy than I’d like it to be. After ironing, it was MUCH better, but it just wasn’t the same!
To help it hold it’s shape better, maybe a super stiff interfacing would work great, though it’s much more expensive than the cheap heavy duty stabilizer I used.
*I browsed online to look for something that would help, and I think I’ve found it! Skip to my Lou made some lunch sacks as well. And, embarrassingly enough, our lunch sacks are pretty similar besides the flap on mine—however, I just took apart a brown paper lunch sack for my pattern, so I suppose the shape would be pretty universal!
And this afternoon I tested it out. First, I pulled the lining away so I didn’t sew through that. See the 3 pins? I sewed one continuous line along the 3 sides that are pinned, just turning and adjusting at the corners.
In case you are wondering why I don’t just do a full shot, it’s because I haven’t washed it since my son got chocolate pudding on the front:).
I really wish that I could give you a perfect tutorial the first time, but just remember that I am an average sewer and I’m learning just like a lot of you:).
Don’t forget that this week starts the next decade for sewing!
