You'll never use a brown paper bag again once you've taken a peak at the dozens of creative lunch-toting options presented in this book. Whether you're looking to create a basic lunch sack, an eco-friendly sandwich wrap, or a picnic-sized tote, you'll find what you're looking for. Materials range from cotton fabric to denim, lace, and even plastic juice pouches. Nifty details like water bottle holders make these bags the perfect combination of adorable and functional, ideal for toting everything from wine bottles to bento boxes. What better way to combine your love of sewing, good food, and a green lifestyle? (International Quilt Festival, 12/10)

Pros - very good ideas, seems detailed and well written
Cons - not in a simple clear tutorial style, just written instructions, so newer sewers may have trouble without pictures included for each step.
Different authors: It's fun having patterns made by different people, since they think and construct things in different ways.
Variety: There's a surprising amount of variety in the book, given that they are all lunch-bag related patterns. Several are a basic sack construction, but they are made using different techniques which allows you to choose the best or to combine techniques to get the perfect bag for you. Plus, there's a cute felt food lunch pattern (which I already own) which is kind of a fun bonus if you have any kids in your life that might enjoy receiving some play food. The banana is quite popular in my house.
Different authors: I'm not certain how the contributors were chosen but I had the impression that they were simply people who created their own patterns and sold the finished items successfully online, not necessarily people who have sold PATTERNS successfully in the past. The instructions remind me of the way I would write instructions, somewhat awkwardly listing the exact steps they use. For many of the patterns I had to read them through a few times before the light came on and I realized what the author was trying to say.Read more ›
