I made this bag for one of my lunchmates, Mr. Peanutbutter Jelly, as he's known around the office, because that's what he eats everyday. It was a plan we discussed when he still had about 2 weeks' worth of brown paper bags left. When I wasn't done sewing in time, he carried his lunch in the plastic bags that the paper ones came in, and then finally in a grocery store plastic bag. So, I think he was glad to get his lunch bag delivery!
The design was very much inspired by the lunch bag I carry, made by Julie. Mr. PBJ's bag is a little bigger, though, and needed more to close it at the top, so I came up with the buttons on the sides. They work pretty well and give it a true lunch sack shape.
