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.
