Pack it with some cutlery from home and the tote keeps things neat and clean. It also prevents the cutlery from accidentally piercing anything you might be carrying along with it. This tote is easy to make, uses very little materials, and can be customized for the individual user.
I was inspired by the knife holders that professional chefs use to transport their knives when they travel.

Step 1: Materials and Equipment
2 Pieces of Fabric 20" X 8"
1 Piece of heavy fusible interfacing 20" X 8"
1 Length of 2/3" ribbon 20"
Step 2: Applying interfacing
make sure the bumpy side of the interfacing is facing the fabric. Otherwise you will just end up sticking it to your ironing board and no one wants that.
Step 3: Sewing the fabric together
Step 4: Iron again and Sew
Step 5: Create pocket for the silverware.
Step 6: Attach ribbon
Step 7: Lights, Camera, Cutlery!
Fold the top down over the cutlery and roll the tote up and tie the ribbon.
Now you're ready to pack your lunch!
