Crochet Lunch Bag Pattern

I generally replace my kid’s lunch boxes every year or two because they get destroyed. (Have I mentioned that my kids are virtual cyclones of destruction yet?) But this year I decided that I’d had enough and I wasn’t spending the money! So enjoy your free Lunch Bag pattern :-)

This was custom designed to my 2 girls requests, but with the right color choices I think that this could easily be converted for a boy. Originally I was going to add spots to the body but then I didn’t feel like extending the project any longer. If you do take the time to add spots please share a picture with me on my facebook, I’d love to see me original vision haha!

Am I the only one who loves that it’s turning fall? I always enjoy crochet more in the fall because it’s hard to have a bunch of hot yarn in your lap during the hot summer months!
