I have made a few lunch bags over the years. They have all been just one layer of fabric, with no closure of velcro, buttons, or anything. Today I decided to quilt them, so they are thicker and hopefully can help keep something cool at least for a brief time. Because they are thicker, they are also a little more challenging to close.
What do you think? Would you rather use a lunch bag with a clip like I show here? Or would you like the tie that is sewn onto the side? You can vote for something fancy like a button, but I'm not going to do a button! I'm trying to keep these as simple as possible. Believe me, if I try anything fancy like a button, I know I'll mess up and the bags will look totally amateurish and ugly.
I am planning to sell these at my church bazaar, and I wonder which ones might sell better than others. To do the clip style, I'd have to buy the clips, which I'm willing to do. It requires a big, fat one like shown, because of the bag's thickness. The tie doesn't require an extra purchase, but they're kind of putzy to make. So I am looking forward to hearing your opinions!
