With this one of a kind lunch bag, your kid’s lunch bag will never get mixed up with another kid’s lunch again.  However, remember to put their name in the inside flap, it could be a very sought after item!  Made from Soft Fabric Paint by Tulip and 3-D Fashion Paint, this is an easy print, transfer and paint project. You can even make dinosaur cut out sandwiches with these great crust cutters from Organize.  All you do is make the canvas bag, or you can buy a blank canvas lunch bag with no flap from Dharma Trading and paint the whole image on the bag. Check your local craft stores for Iron On Transfer paper, that will make it easier to transfer your pattern to the canvas.
