Teacher Appreciation Lunch Bags featuring Sunnyside Ave fabrics

*fabrics for this post were provided by Riley Blake Designs all opinions are my own.

When I first saw Amy Smart’s new fabric line Sunnyside Ave there were two things I thought of- summer picnics with my best friend when I was in elementary school, and of course teachers- because of the darling apple prints. These darling lunch bags could easily be used for either. I imagine my girls with them swinging from their handlebars riding their bikes to the park for lunch. Or, I see them just like this, sitting eagerly on a teacher’s desk, patiently waiting for that blessed time of day when they get to eat lunch and breathe for just a minute.

I made the lunch bags using this tutorial by Ayumi. They are simple to sew and really fun! I used fusible fleece on the outside and a medium/heavy weight interfacing on the lining. It just helps give the bag even more body.

I also have the pattern for these sweet mini zipper pouches! They are perfect for holding business cards, lunch money or organizing your purse! I think they make such a fun pair!
This line of fabric is delightful and bright- so very much like Amy is in real life. I had a blast sewing with it!
Have a wonderful week!
xoxo,
Amy
