Luxie Lunch Bag Sew A Long

Summer is in FULL swing, but back to school will be here before we know it! I know my list of projects for back to school is quickly growing, but at the top of the list is a new lunch bag for my soon to be third grader. After sewing up the Luxie, I don't know if I ever want to make or use a different lunch bag. I can easily fit my food containers without having to shove them in sideways, and the front zip pocket is perfect for stashing utensils or a couple bags of tea for later. Have I sold you on needing this pattern yet? Well, if you needed anymore convincing, it's the perfect for summer BYOB parties as Sincerely Jen shows you with her fab Luxie: 

I will be be hosting a sewalong here on this blog from July 24-July 28th so you have plenty of time to order your supplies and pick your fabrics. 

Here's what you will need: 

1/2 Yard exterior Fabric
1/2 Yard exterior accent fabric
1/2 Yard lining fabric (PUL or some type of water restant fabric such as rip stop nylon or laminate is HIGHLY don't want something in your lunch bag spilling and ruining your pretty bag.)1
1/2 Yard Insulated fleece such as Isulbrite
10" x 21.5" Foam Stabilizer
1.25 Yard of piping, premade or make your own
22" or longer bag zipper...double pull is what I used. 
9" zipper
3/4 Yard of woven interfacing

Although this sewalong will run from July 24-28th, these posts will remain up to refer to, so no worries if you can't join up! I'd love to see your Luxie that you create, please share your finished bag!

Here's the Schedule:

July 24th: Cutting and prepping your fabrics
July 25th: Making piping and prepping zippers
July 26th:Assembling zipper pocket 
July 27th: Handles and constructing exterior
July 28th: Making lining and putting it all together

I hope you'll join us!

I'd love to see your progress shots and as a bonus, those who share their completed Luxie using the hashtags by July 31st will be entered to win one of three Emmaline Bags Gift cards!
