Carry your lunch, make-up, overnight items, or the entire contents of your handbag in luxury. This is a versatile project that features a wire frame that helps hold the top open wide for easy access. Is it a handbag or a lunch bag? You decide!
Customize the zipped bag to suit your needs by choosing from 2 handle styles, and adding the optional outside zipper pocket.
For a lunch bag, pre-washing your fabrics is recommended and using cotton for the lining so you can wash and reuse the bag as often as you need to. The frames are removable for washing! The foil backed thermal fleece/batting will help keep your food chilled. If you would rather have a wipe-clean lining in a lunch bag, you could substitute the cotton lining with laminated cotton, PUL, diaper liner, or nylon jacketing and use food safe containers.
