For a fun project that's really easy, try this lunch bag. Here's how it's done.
Step 1: Materials list
1/2 yard of sturdy fabric for the bag
1/2 yard of oilcloth (for lining)
18" of piping
Velcro for closing
thread, scissors, ruler, pins, sewing needle, craft glue
1 jazzy decoration (we used a black flower with a 'parkly middle)
1 covered ponytail elastic
We'll be using a 1/2" seam allowance throughout, except for the top stitching.
