Made Me a Lunch Tote

It's been an adjustment having to take lunch to work with me (so much planning!).  But just because I'm trying to be economical doesn't mean I have to brownbag it.  Indeed, why not gold/blue/white/black bag it? Tired of packing my lunch in old shopping bags (even Anthropologie), I decided I needed something more environmentally friendly and just the right size.  

Behold, my new hand-quilted lunch bag!  It took me several hours over the course of the last week and a half.  I used fabric from my costume in the sixth grade play (some 15 years ago), a lovely cotton print I bought at Stone Mountain & Daughter, and some remnants from Wal-Mart.  The stitching is pretty darn sloppy, but you can't really tell, and it will do the job.  See slideshow below for the making-of.
