Drawstring lunch bag set (ladybug version)



Here is something I made recently. 

It's a drawstring lunch bag made of Japanese cotton print, featuring... flowers and ladybugs!    It may be a bit hard to tell from the above pic, but those red circular spots on the print are ladybugs.  Pretty unique fabric, right?



The lunch bag lays flat like this when collapsed.



Here is the side view.  The handles are made of very sturdy cotton webbing.





Using some leftover fabric, I made a matching sandwich bag with velcro opening.
Can you see the ladybugs on this image?




 Opening area of the sandwich bag. 
Lining is made of vinyl covered cotton for easy cleaning.



The drawstring lunch bag and the matching sandwich bag will be a birthday gift to our family friend's daughter, who turned eight recently.

And the reason I used this fabric for the gift is because I learned that the birthday girl likes ladybugs, among other things...  Hope she likes the lunch bag set, too :)

I agree, the fabric is lovely. The red you've used as lining works so well. It's such a nice gift, I'd like one for myself! Is that wrong in a 33 year old "woman"?
