Following the tutorials suggested, today I show you how to make a lunch backpack for the kids as recomended by Maria José from Fieltropiezos. Now that we are back to school it will come in handy to those of you who have children.
We will need a piece of fabric 33 x 85 cm for the bag and two strips of fabric 10 x 125 cm for the straps.
Once cut, iron all the pieces bending the straps in half lengthwise leaving the back of the fabric out.
Then sew the edges, flip the straps and iron them again.
Fold the remaining pieces of fabric in half with the back of the fabric facing out. With pins now attach the straps inside the bag at the bottom, each one aside with the ends together.
Sew each side of the bag stopping at about 8 centimeters from the top.
On the right side, put the straps on the top edge of the bag interlacing them together and make a hem over them holding it with pins.
Turn over the bag to sew the hem.
Flip over the bag and now it can be used for children’s lunch or whatever we want. Try it! It’s easy! ;)
