Do you love your lunchbox?

If not, check out these adorable lunchboxes from ginia18.



and check out the ones I made.




Virginia from Gingercake was so sweet to let me review her lunchbox pattern!And I get to give one away, too!

I was delighted when I looked at her etsy store.
Her banner...


...already in love?...me too.
Look at this little guy!



Okay... so back to the lunchboxes.

We are lunch takers.
William takes his lunch everyday and so does Mr. Cole. William informed me that he 'needed' a new lunchbox for school next year and I was really sick of packing Mr. Cole's lunch in brown sacks. (Even though I LOVE writing funny messages on them- guess I'll have to do that on his napkin...)

So, the first one's I made were these.



I was origionally planning to make them exactly the same, but you know me. I can never make anything exactly the same.





I did shorten the handle a bit on these because Mr. Cole didn't want it to look ANYTHING like a purse. He snatched it the first day it was made, so I guess he liked it. (wink)

I like the little pockets on the side. Perfect for utensils and napkins and little pieces of candy! :)




I love the inside, too! Totally easy to clean with this oilcloth that I got here.
It's the first time I've sewn on oilcloth and it was easy, peasy. I will definitly be back for more.



well... those were fun to make, but I really wanted to make a girly one. But the girls and I don't really take lunches anywhere... if we picnic.... we take our basket. So... I was mentioning this to my Mom when she casually says, "I take my lunch everyday." Done!

and this is the icing on the cake. Fun to make and soooooo adorable! I can't wait to give this to my Mom. How cute is she gonna be?




and the sweet oilcloth on the inside.



Cute, huh.

So... are you ready to love your lunchbox? Because Virginia is letting me give one of her patterns away!! Wooo Hooo... I know you're excited.

What a fabulous idea....I visited ginia 18's shop, she has some beautiful work for sale at crazy cheap prices, I honestly think she should be charging more for her lovely work.
