  1. First I traced the top on to yellow fabric.
  2. Then I estimated the size I would need for the bottom and sides for the blue fabric.

  3. Then I took some Pellon and fused it to the blue and the yellow to had a little padding.

  4. Then I took that handy dandy spray glue and sprayed the inside of the lunch box.
  5. I put the blue fabric back in and then trimmed it up as best I could.

  6. I glued some ribbon around the edge. Just to make it pretty. :) I forgot to take a picture of this step. I don't know why.
  7. I decided I needed a couple of pockets. I made one and sewed it to the yellow side since I hadn't stuck it on the lunch box.

  8. Since I'd already stuck the blue down I made another pocket. Put some elastic around the top to help hold stuff in it. (Ignore the wet spot on the fabric. I spilled water on it.)
