Reusable lunch bags

What you will need

• 2 pieces of fabric of equal size

• Needle and thread

• Length of string, rope or even fabric (this can be replaced with a button or piece of Velcro, to fasten)

To make a bag

1. Line up the two pieces of fabric and sew three sides of the fabric together to form a pouch.

2. Turn inside out and admire your new bag.

3. Make a drawstring bag by folding the top down (to form a tunnel) and stitching it into place. Remember to leave the edges open. Slide some string or rope through the tunnel.

4. Alternatively, fold over the top and sow on a button or Velcro to fasten.

5. Get creative with decorations!
