Day 6: Lunchbag for Kids

Only one week until Christmas! Today we have a free pattern for a child's lunch bag--a perfect stocking stuffer! 

(See yesterday's correct answer and the bundle winner's name at the bottom of this post.)

This cute patchwork drawstring bag can be used as lunch sack or for holding and transporting toys (think Matchbox cars, blocks, or small dolls). And we're sure you're not surprised--we've even got a fabric line suggestion for you to use. 
Have you seen our Googlies prints by Michele D'Amore?

It's not often that you can call monsters sweet, but these goofy, quirky characters certainly are! Here's a section of the border print.

And a sampling of some of the other fabrics in the line. You could even personalize the lunch bag with the child's name or initials by fussy cutting these letter blocks.

The collection comes in a pastel colorway too.
