Pink Penguin: Tutorial: Lunch Bag

Pink Penguin: Tutorial: Lunch Bag
Thank you for encouraging me to write up a tute on this lunch (bento box) bag! I really like this bag pattern because this bag, measuring approximately 9"(width) x 7 1/2"(hight w/o handles) x 5 1/2" (depth), can be used not only for bento boxes of any kind but also for carrying little crafty projects like yarn + needles. It has a cover inside that can give nice privacy for whatever in there and the cover can also prevent it from getting dusty in a windy day. It is much sturdier and larger than the fabric basket, so if you found that your fabric basket was too small or too floppy as a gift bag, this might be a good alternative..?! As usual, I have tons of images to share each step with you, so bare with me! There you go!! We'll need these pieces of fabric, As usual, all the measurement includes 1/4" seam allowances unless otherwise noted. Then press seam open. I am fusing it onto the wrong side of the outer bag piece. Boxing corners. Then cut off the corner. Now let's move onto the handles.

Travel Accessories: Plenty of Pockets Tote When you're on the road, doesn't it always seems to be the ordinary, everyday things you are suddenly in desperate need of: gum, nail clippers, your headphones? I get a little panicky, certain I've left behind the most obvious items... as if perhaps I'm on an arctic expedition and won't see civilization for days. But the opportunity for replenishment doesn't matter; I want my stuff close at hand. That's the theory behind our handsome travel tote: plenty o' pockets to stash all your stuff.

Thirteenth Doctor pattern by Anni Howard This pattern is available as a free Ravelry download The Thirteenth Doctor scarf was inspired by the colours in the scarf worn by Jodie Whittaker’s Doctor Who. I chose 15 colours from Stylecraft Special DK range which sounds like a lot of money but actually they are very cost effective at less than £2 per 100g ball. I had lots left so you can make multiple scarves from most of the shades - the only colour you will need to buy for a second scarf is the N (mid blue shade) as it takes over half the ball. To make it even more cost effective, work only 18 rows instead of 30 in this shade, to get two scarves from one ball.
