Very nice pattern. Clear instructions and photos. I do not make bags or purses and this pattern was easy to follow. Not sure why the Insul-bright was trimmed on four corners when the outer fabric was not trimmed? In Photo 17, it does not appear the Insul-bright is trimmed. My flap was wonky after sewing, but that was my doing as it was fine when I cut it out. My machine does not like sewing over the Peltex; I used a piece of med-weight fusible for the handles. Also used a 3" piece of sew-on velcro instead of the magnet closure. Husband loves his new lunch sack! Would definitely make another. 4.5 stars!

Easy pattern to follow. I put a binding on the top edge because I'm a quilter and find it easy. I couldn't get hardware locally so I used hook and loop tape. I am very happy with it.

The pattern was perfect and easy to follow. I made the first lunch bag in no time with no problems! I love my new lunch bag so much, I monogrammed it! Thanks for a great pattern!
