I mean "extolling her heroic attempts to write posts about fabric sacks while the rest of the house fell apart around her and everyone ate takeout pizza and oh, while she was also packing the entire family's summer wardrobe and enough gifts for half the civilized world in preparation for her trip to Singapore to see family, where she's now been soaking up the sun for the past 8 days already but nobody knew because she didn't even have the time to blog about it."

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..?!
