My elder daughter Santoshi will be starting with Grade 1 in a few days from now and she is very excited. She has been waiting for almost a year to make use of her Tinkerbell backpack similar to this one.
She also got a water bottle with a fairy and a castle printed on it, so I thought why not get her a matching lunch bag too?
So, as usual, another DIY project was born! I admit, until it turned out finished, I was not sure if it would really work or just ruin an otherwise good lunch bag. But I am quite happy with what I ended up with (I am not a perfectionist – you will see).
I got two images printed – one for the top portion (9 inches by 6 inches) and the other for the front (7 inches by 8 inches approx)
Things that I used:
- A plain lunch bag
- Disney Fairies/Tinkerbell poster (printed on vinyl) – one for the top portion of the lunch bag and the other for the front
- Nylon webbing tape (salvaged from a small bag thrown away earlier)
- Sewing machine
- Seam ripper
How I did it?
Step 1: Rip the seams of the nylon webbing tape on the top portion of the lunch bag.
Step 2: Align the image (9 inches by 6 inches) to ensure that the ends will be inside the nylon webbing tape once we sew it back.
Step 3: Sew the nylon webbing tape back in place keeping all the ends of the image are tucked within the webbing.
Step 4: Rip the seams on the webbing tape from the front portion of the bag. Align and place the second image (7 inches by 8 inches) on the front portion.
Step 5: Sew the webbing tape back in place ensuring the the bottom end of the image is tucked in.
Step 6: Add the webbing tape on the other three sides of the image and sew.
That’s it! Now you have turned
