Party Lunch Bags

So, I am just now getting around to posting about some of the crafty aspects of Carter's birthday party. You can read about it here. But since the kids were eating lunch at the museum, I wanted to have a fun, festive type of lunch bag. I almost bought some online, but then went to Walmart and found some cute alternatives.

I bought a two 3-packs of multi-colored canvas bags {around $6 for the pack} then bought some cute and bright material from the clearance bins.

1. Iron heat-n-bond on to the back of your fabric.
2. Cut out the initial.
3. Iron on canvas bag.

Voila! Sweet, simple, and cute lunch bags for the kiddos. You will notice that the "S" was for a little girl and I did a little flower on the corner with some black fabric I had lying around the house. It is best if you do a zig-zag stitch around the letter and it will stay safe through multiple washings.

The kids ate PB&J sandwiches, chips, and fruit snacks. Do you see how much Owen was loving his sour-cream and onion chips? This is the first time he has been able to eat these chips :-)

The kids seemed to love their bags and carried them around the museum. This also served as a party-gift. How could you go wrong?
