I’m on a brown bagging kick right now, trying to save some pennies on my daily lunch habit. But, on Sunday night, when I gathered my cobb salad with bread and vinaigrette on the side, I realized that a traditional brown paper lunch bag was not going to cut it.
In about an hour I was able to whip up a simple, square, drawstring lunch bag. Sized at 8″ square it fits those nifty square sandwich and salad tupperwares perfectly. At 12″ tall, there’s plenty of room for a bag of chips or dressing or whatever you might need to round out your meal.
I lined the bottom 6″ with plastic which created nice pockets on the inside as well.
A free, downloadable lunchbag pattern is available here if you’d like to try whipping up one of your own!
