The Munch Box Bag is a large lunch box that is super practical and packs so much in!

Featuring a double zipper that you can open only at the top for a quick grab of something on the move or fully open up to show off all inside. You can also use the open flap as a little placemat to keep your desk clean!

On the outside there are two elasticated side pockets – great for cups of coffee and water and on the back there is handy zipper pocket for keys/money/extra snacks! Use thermal interfacing to keep food hot or cold and you will find that everyone in the family wants one of these!

This listing is for the instant downloadable pattern templates and booklet. This includes full colour step-by-step instructions, and full sized templates to print, SVG’s and Projector file as well as a free video tutorial.
