I wanted to make a lunch bag that was good for the environment (forget brown bagging it, it’s all about the “green” bags now) and I wanted it to be summery. This is what I came up with. The colors remind me of the sand and waves of the beach. I gave the bag generous straps so you can easily tie them to close off the top and still have enough strap to hang it off your wrist or stroller.
This bag can also be used for so much more. It can hold your bathing suits for the beach, keep your book and Ipod safe from the sun, or use it as a cute purse with a sundress.
This bag only takes one skein of each color to complete, which means not only is this bag good for the environment but its also good for your wallet.
