Basmati Lunch Sack

Added May 3, 2010

Rice is part of our daily fare which is why I ended up with a few burlap rice sacks. They’re sturdy and the design is also quite charming. I decided to use one to make a lunch sack with a sturdy lining. I didn’t use a pattern and just winged it. It was also the first project I’ve done using my “new” sewing machine so — hooray for me!
