My original intention was to make a komekuburo, a Japanese-style drawstring bag with tabs along the top for the drawstring, to use when I need to carry my lunch. After I'd pieced and quilted my sides, I realized the darn thing was going to be ridiculously large for a lunch bag. Also, the top of a komkuburo doesn't completely close, so I hastened over to Ayumi's lunch bag tutorial for a save:
Using her super easy to follow directions, I added a band around the top and a drawstring cover, and now I love it! It's weird and quirky, but so fun!
It's 9" (22.5 cm) on a side and 10.25 (26 cm) tall.
