Yesterday I spent the morning finishing a lunch bag I designed for my father-in-law's birthday present. I wanted to make it large enough to fit the left-overs containers he takes, some snacks and a drink, and to open into a placemat so he can have a clean place to eat on the road. I also wanted it to be wipe-down-able which presented some design challenges. Here is what I came up with:
(Pardon the pictures... I didn't have time to make them pretty.) Also, don't zoom in too much.
I used faux wood oil cloth that I got here.
I took pictures of the process for a future tutorial, but that will have to wait until kid and I are over this flu. We're in day three now, and she is still getting fevers of 102. Poor kid. Fortunately, I think we have a quiet stretch coming up, here, so we should be able to rest and recover. And maybe make a tiny dent in the looong list of projects I have managed to accumulate.
