Lunch Bags

 Lunch bag sets are in the shop yay!! I had lots of requests pouring in for lunch bags after the write up in the Mint on the 31st of August. Last week was spent picking out some of my favourite fabrics from my stash and putting them together for these bags. Each bag uses 5 various patterned and coloured fabrics. In the last two years, I made these as gifts for alot of people. Even Ma and Meera carry them to work, and believe me they look adorable. 






 I tweaked the cutlery roll this time using a pattern from Amy Morinaka's Zakka Handmades. Rolls up neatly for easy carrying. The hardest and the best part had to be picking out fabrics for these bags. Its actually hard to pick a favourite, but the Kitewala and the Fishwala bags make me really happy the way they turned out. I haven't been able to make one for my self though :) These bags are extremely spacious and just the right size to sling around the arm. I'd love to carry little sewing or knitting projects around while traveling in one of these. I'm hoping they find houses for themselves soon. That reminds me am eagerly waiting to watch Lunchbox next weekend :) 
Gosh! all this lunch talk makes me hungry already and I've already chewed on yummy homemade chocolate cake Meera made for me last evening :)) Sunday was spent lazing at Meera's house drinking endless cups of masala chai and listening to music and ofcourse I had Jhumpa for company too. The train journey is about an hour one way and that gives me ample time to pull out my kindle. Oh the kindle has been quite a blessing, I do miss the smell of paper but aah...I just don't have the space at home anymore. 
Back to work I say! I'm working on a new category...so loads of planning to be done. See you later. 
Happy Monday ;)
