My friend Denise asked to make a lunch bag for her sister to use at work. Why not? I'd never lunch bagged it before. I'd also never given a bottom or side to a tote bag, so this was a good way to experiment. The results were great. The finished bag is around 9 x 10 inches or so, maybe more, maybe less. I'm terrible at measurements. But this bag makes me so happy. Gives a little tingle in the all the right bag making places.
