There's no better time than during the school holidays to get into a DIY project. Craft site the purl bee details how to make a nifty, reusable homemade lunch bag.
Whether you want to go green or just make your "brown bag" uniquely identifiable, a reusable lunch bag is a fairly simple project, suitable for even the amateur sewing enthusiast. The purl bee site details how to decorate the bag with embroidery, but if that's not your thing, you can just use a patterned fabric.
What do you use to take your lunch to school (or work)? Let us know in the comments.
