Whenever I've been up in the past I've always taken a tupperware container of food for the trip home as it's a long journey. But by the time I've come to eat it, it's been spread out all over my bag/main bag/anything else that gets in its way. The container had shuffled around, tipped over and dumped its contents liberally throughout my bag. Not a good look.
I hadn't found the 'right' bag to carry it in either.
So, with my new-found enthusiasm and polka dot tablecloth fabric I set about designing a lunch bag that would do the job - keep my food up the right way! Copious research proved fruitless so I had a go myself.
Using baking paper I figured out how best to carry the tupperware container and made a miniature prototype first - just to make sure it worked out ok!
Here's the resulting lunch bag with the container inside it already:
The view from the side:
The interior is quite large too:
The top gaped a little so I added a velcro strap to keep it together. The velcro was repurposed from my daughter's old school book bag - it's perfect for this project because it was bright red - you don't see red velcro very often!!
I throw nothing away LOL!
Early results indicate that it not only keeps my lunch up the way it was intended, but it's also large enough to hold other food/items too.
I'll let you know how it goes on Saturday!
