Lunch Bag Tutorials

19. August 2013 08:52 by Liz Burton | 0 Comments

Last week we did a great tutorial on pencil bags for back-to-school.  This week we bring you another back-to-school idea that also helps our environment.  We like that you can throw these in the washer instead of throwing out a brown paper lunch bag.  And they are so much cuter!   4my3boyz Fabrics has just about any novelty fabric you can dream of! Why not let the kids pick some out and make it their own.

 

Here are some great tutorials we found on making your own re-usable lunch bags. 

 

In the top left picture, Pink Penguin shares a great tutorial on a lunch bag with handles.

In the top right picture, Create Celebrate Explore shares a lunch bag with a button closure & a carrying handle.

In the bottom left,  Fiskars has a great tutorial for an insulated lunch bag.

In the bottom right, Bead & Needle share a tutorial for a simple lunch bag with a Velcro closure.

 

Here are some fabrics from 4my3boyz Fabrics that we think would make fabulous lunch bags.

Food Festival Breads Rolls and Bagels All Over Doesn't that make you hungry just looking at it!

 

Mary Engelbreit's Mottos Fabric Makes you want to "Put your heart in it!"

 

And I don't think you can go wrong with Schools Supplies fabric--be sure to check out all the other School Themed fabrics in this category.

 

And last, but certainly not least is Pizza!! Again, you need to be sure to check out all the food related fabrics! So much fun!

 

Happy Lunching!

50 Things to do With a Fat Quarter: #12 Pencil Case

12. August 2013 22:07 by Liz Burton | 0 Comments

It's the most wonderful time of the year...Fa la la la la! I hear this is a holiday song, but I sing it at this time of year! Don't get me wrong, I love my children and I love summertime but there is something to be said for routine and time away from each other. To send our little ones off to school, I thought I would share a fun tutorial on a pencil case. 

Have them pick out their favorite fabric & get sewing! I am using Rainbow Peace Signs from 4my3boyz Fabrics.

50 Things to do With a Fat Quarter: #11 Potluck Bowl Cover

5. August 2013 23:15 by Liz Burton | 0 Comments

It's August! I can hardly believe it. Soon we will be ending our summers and getting back into the routine of school. Do you have end of summer parties coming up? Well, if you do, you could take your potluck salad in a bowl with a fabric cover made from a fat quarter! I based this project from a tutorial found at The Cottage Home.

 

So easy to make! I am using the Better Gnomes & Gardens Mushrooms on Pink from 4my3boyz Fabrics. Let's get started!

 

For the length of the elastic, I simply took my elastic and measured it around the bowl, pulling it snug. 

And there you have it! Cute & fun!

50 Things to do With a Fat Quarter: #10 Fabric-Covered Jar Lids

30. July 2013 08:30 by Liz Burton | 0 Comments

I love today's fat quarter project! Not only do you get to use great fabric, but you can up-cycle, as well! I love the idea of taking something you were going to throw away and putting it good use! The jars I am using were recently used to store my pickles and pizza and spaghetti sauces.

 

 

I simply gave them a really good wash and put them to work. I am using gray with white polka dots from 4my3boyz Fabrics.  I would also suggest that, if you use a lighter fabric, you paint your lid white.  The darker color of the lid will show through if not painted white. Okay, let's get busy!
