FREE Sewing Patterns from Sew It All 12! + A SNEAK PEEK

Sew It All Volume 12

We’re so excited about the new issue of Sew It All! Throughout the month, we’ll be showing you some of our favorite projects from Volume 12.

I’m sure you’re not surprised to hear that a favorite ended up on the cover. We love this lunch bag because it’s pretty, useful and easy to make… and just perfect for back-to-school time!


The piecing may look complicated, but it’s really just strips stitched together to make a few basic panels. It’s easy to customize to your favorite lunch-eater by using colors and patterns that appeal to them, or look for licensed fabric to make something for the kids in your life. The sky’s the limit when you’re working with quilting cotton.

The project is quilted — the instructions call for regular batting, but for a more insulated bag you can use insulated batting. This material has mylar added to it, which reflects heat and cold, keeping them to one side of the batting.

Piece Meal

The goal of Sew It All is to bring you easy projects that you can complete in an afternoon, so we promise that piecing, quilting, lining, constructing and binding this lunch bag is an easy and fun process. Find the simple instructions in Sew It All Volume 12, available on newsstands and now.

  1. I downloaded the 6 free patterns and noticed that the sizes are only labelled as XS, S, M, L, XL but can’t find any measurements to explain the sizing. Where can I find the measurements?
