Lunch Bags (or mini toes)

Most of what I do comes out a need in our household. I make something and think, what a good idea, I'll make a handful for the Sisters Market.

The little Lunch Bag or mini tote is an example of this ... when my hubby goes off to work he generally takes a plastic bag with left overs, fruit and sometimes a can of something. Inevitably the plastic bag finds it's way into the bin and the plastic containers tend not to find their way home. So I made him a black lunch bag with Chilli fabric (I thought it looked manly).

It is a three panel tote with Cotton Drill on the outside and high quality cotton full lining so it sits quite square when there is nothing in it. But it is not too stiff. And the thing I like about them is that they are washable. So if you spill something in them, chuck them in the wash with your jeans.

My daughter yesterday quite liked the size and wandered around with it on her shoulder and put her teddies into it ... so I thought I would make a few for Saturday's market.

These are great.
I made some little totes about 8 years ago and people collected them.
Good luck with them at the markets.
