Show off chic cafeteria style with this easy-to-make -- and easy-to-wash -- lunch bag.
To begin, cut a 12- to 16-inch section from a pant leg. Fold over a 1/2-inch strip around the top and sew it down to create a casing.
Through an opening left in the casing, thread a 3-foot length of cord and knot the two ends together.
To form the bag's bottom, cut another piece of fabric from the pants, about 1/2-inch larger than the leg's circumference. Turn the leg inside out and sew the two pieces together.
Customize the bag with patches, fabric paints or buttons.
