Cross Body Lunch Bag

I had a request from my niece for a cross body lunch bag that would carry not only her lunch but a book as well.  I found a cute tute for a bento bag and thought it would be perfect.

I simply lengthened the strap and we were in business.

This is the top view.

And top view opened.
I liked that it completely opened for plenty of room.  I used a bright red ripstop for the lining.  I don't think this one was thick enough, so I'll use something different next time.

I also did not like that the zipper doesn't go all the way to the edges.  I couldn't find any zipper stops in town and I didn't have time to order any, but I'll do that differently if I make this bag again.

I had some left over faux leather from Robbie's Halloween costume and thought it was perfect for the coordinating fabric. It's hard to see in the pic, but it's the black pieces. :)

I really love the design of the bag and think my niece will love it.  It was very easy to make, and the instructions were easy to follow.  I would make this again.

Thanks for stopping by!  Feel free to leave comments or ask questions below.
