I love buying fabric remnants. And, even more than that, I love when I can put those remnants to a really cute use. Like this lunch bag!
This is the birthday gift I made last week for a girlfriend (had to wait to post it until she got it). It's technically a home dec weight fabric but I thought it would hold up nicely for daily use. The button I already had (the odd man out leftover from the pink and green striped dress in this post) - love when that happens. I just used plain old 1/4" elastic for the loop closure. And I used french seams throughout...currently, one of my favorite things in sewing. No pattern, just based it on a real paper lunch bag and made it much bigger (leftovers have to fit in it, let's be realistic).
