I’m usually not into cute animal print fabrics. But these are sloths. Lazy, friendly, totally content sloths. And it’s oilcloth. And the colour palette is beautifully muted. And…, anyway. I bought both fabrics at a Japanese fabrics stall at a Dutch fabric market in my German hometown (pretty international project, isn’t it?) for rather a lot of money.
I knew I wanted to make a lunchbag so I went online for inspiration. I discovered a tutorial which I used as a rough guideline. At first I opted for the closure indicated in the tutorial because I liked, that it would enable me to adjust the bag size to whatever is inside. However, when I tried to put something inside it turned out that the bag didn’t really carry much one the top part was rolled down enough to keep closed. I the ripped a couple of seems and reattached on of the velcro straps as shown in the picture. Worked a charm- the bag fits more and the closure is secure.
