Tasty Crochet book. I used the lunch bag instructions from Tumbling Blocks Blog with a few changes, listed below.
- The exterior is cotton (not oilcloth) and the interior is clear vinyl, with a layer of batting in between.
- In step 3, instead of sewing the velcro vertically, I placed it horizontally, 4" from the top, as pictured below.
- In step 4, the "wrong sides facing" instruction confused me. I think what was meant was to sew with the wrong sides together. Because I was working with cotton fabrics, and had raw edges, I sewed right sides together, and turned the bag right side out after step 6.
- The long pieces (7x31) were more like 7x45 - I simply cut 7 inches of fabric and didn't alter the width at all. Most fabrics are 45" wide. In step 7, I trimmed three sides to the same length, but for the longer section, I think I trimmed it even with the vinyl layer. I may have just left it - I can't remember. I sewed bias tape around the entire upper edge to cover the raw edges. I then folded the end with the excess fabric down so there was just enough space to sew the velcro on and have the bottom of the velcro even with the top of the other three sides. I then applied the velcro to the folded down flap. (Again, see picture below)
