Here's a free pattern for this Insulated Lunch Bag.

Here’s a free pattern for an insulated Lunch Bag to sew. This delightful cute bag has the following features:

  • a hook-and-loop tape front closure.
  • a top handle.
  • an easy-to-clean vinyl lining.
  • a special insulating batting is inserted between the lining and exterior layers to help keep the bag’s contents at the appropriate temperature.
  • An optional shoulder strap for those of us who already have plenty to carry in the morning.

As the designer says lunch bags are the perfect motivation for you and your family to pack healthy meals and snacks, for school or work. You can be creative and customize the exterior with a bold print for the kids. As a personal touch, the designer also suggests that you add an embellishment to the top flap, such as an embroidered initial or an iron-on patch.
