Out to Lunch 2.0



Creative Sewing Club 2024
Ruth Locke

Welcome to Creative Sewing Club 2024! I’m looking forward to a year of sewing adventures with you.

In June, we will be making the ByAnnie’s bag “Out to Lunch 2.0”. There are 2 sizes. I will be listing the supplies for the large pattern, because that is the one I made. This bag is a great all-purpose bag. There are 2 mesh pockets inside and one pocket on the front of the bag. It would be useful as a supply bag for class, a lunch bag, or small carry on for travel. There is also an optional crossbody strap that could be added. This bag is big enough for me to put my Tupperware lunch containers in, but I think I’d rather use it as a bag for class! If this is your first ByAnnie Bag, don’t get overwhelmed. The instructions might seem like a lot, but we will make this bag together, step by step. You will be amazed at your finished bag! I would highly encourage you to complete the prep work listed below.
