Due to the overwhelming response, I am asking for your support so I can manufacture these and get them in stores. I made some design changes...check out http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/575209219/write-on-lunch-bag and support me!
An easy, fun way to make your kids lunch special. An easy-to-sew lunchbag. Write an important note to your kid, remind them of an upcoming test, let them know what’s for lunch or just tell them how special they are. It easily wipes clean with a paper towel.
Step 1: Cut Pieces
Cut two 9 ½ x 13 pieces of blackboard/chalk cloth (bellocchio.com)
Step 2: Pin & Sew
Pin right sides together and sew 3 sides, leaving a short side open.
I cut the “open side” with pinking shears (not shown)
Make sure to reinforce the corners by backstitching at the beginning and end of the seam.
Step 3: Pull Bag Into Shape
Pull the bag at its sides so a
diamond shape is formed on top.
Mark 2 inches from point of
diamond to middle of diamond and sew across. Reinforce seams.
Cut off the corners about ¼” from seam.
Step 4: Turn Inside Out
Turn the bag right side out.
For closure, attach one half of a Velcro sticker to the top portion of one side, roll down and attach the other half to the other side.
Step 5: Easily Wipes Down
It easily wipes clean with a damp paper towel.
