Reusable Bags Part Two and Plan G

So the reusable lunch bags are complete and ready to use for lunches of all kinds. I wimped out a bit and used the Cyndi get-r-done method of zig-zag stitch turned inside out. This happened because after nearly two hours of trying to make the Serger work, and failing, we went to plan B which quickly moved on and on until we found ourselves at about plan G. My friend Carrie persevered though and her bags are much prettier then mine but with only a couple of weeks before baby arrives I couldn’t have an unfinished project. Carrie’s bags have the unique added feature of binding tape along the edges. They make them look like a yummy commercial product! In fact I think she is about ready to take orders for them. Here are some pics of what we came up with.
