Taylor swinging

My baby starts school next week.  He’ll be going to preschool 2 days a week.  And he couldn’t be more excited!  (Isn’t he a doll?  I made those shorts he’s wearing too and never even blogged about it.  Man!  I’m a bad blogger!   😉   )

Of course, now he needs a lunch bag of his own! I bought this pattern from Cascade Lemonade on Etsy. Super cute – don’t ya think?

Taylor's new lunch bag

My little boy is messy (as most 3 year old are, I’m sure) so I wanted to make the outside and inside wipeable. I used an iron-on laminate to accomplish this on the outside fabric. The bag has then has a layer of insul-bright to help keep food the right temperature and nylon ripstop as the lining inside.

Of course I HAD to use the newest fabric from Amy Schimler. Animal Party is super fun. When Taylor saw it he asked if I would make him a blanket for his bunk bed. (He doesn’t have a bunk bed…but a friend of ours has the most awesome bunk bed ever. In fact, I’ll have to get pics to show you guys!) And then he added “And a shirt and some shorts too.”

Animal Party

This won’t be the last thing you see from this fabric for sure! I just LOVE it! The rich boy colors, the fun animals – it makes me so happy.  So happy, in fact, that I think I need to go cut some more of it up for my next project. :-) Okay – hope you have a great weekend!

  1. Fabulous lunch box!!!! Love the shorts too! And what a cutie pie!


  2. That is seriously cute – both the lunchbox, the shorts and your little man.


  3. Thanks! Note to self….don’t be too lazy to change the thread color. :-) That binding was a little difficult to put on with all the layers…and my stitches show it! Anyway making another one (or three) so next time I’ll take the time to change the thread color and wind a new bobbin.


  4. Looks great! Can’t wait to hear how the start of school goes! :)


  5. That little lunchbox is so cute? Brilliant!
