Crafty Lunch Sack
Total Time 1 hour Ages all-ages

Show off chic cafeteria style with this easy-to-make -- and easy-to-wash -- lunch bag.

What you'll need

  • Old pair of pants
  • Fabric scissors
  • Sewing machine or thread and needle
  • Cord
  • Patches, paint or buttons

How to make it

  1. 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.

  2. Through an opening left in the casing, thread a 3-foot length of cord and knot the two ends together.

  3. 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.

  4. Customize the bag with patches, fabric paints or buttons.
