I have a problem . . . I see a tutorial or idea that I like and I make it before my kids are at the age where they need it. The pink one is for my daughter who is only 8 months and has no need for a lunch sack any time soon. Does anyone else do that cause the project just seems that fun? I've made her the ABC's in a can too. Just too excited.
Anyway, back to the lunch sacks. I followed the tutorial from A Lemon Squeezy Home. It probably took me 3 times longer to cut out the fabric, lining, interfacing, and vinyl than it did to actually sew it.
This was my first time using iron-on vinyl. It worked better than I thought it would. (The tutorial calls for vinyl fabric or PUL - neither which I had on hand or could find at Jo-Anns, so I tried the iron on vinyl.)
I tried different techniques with the bias tape . . . the pink one was with the instructions in the tutorial. I don't like how it ended up. I'm not too used to bias tape, so that may have been the problem, but I tried it different on the blue one. I kept it folded together and sewed it on in one smooth motion all the way around. I found it easier to stretch it around the curves and corners this way. And it doesn't look baggy at the top. I may just unpick the pink one and re-do it. We'll see how my mood is tomorrow.
