Sack Lunch

Introducing the typical unhealthy American sack lunch (minus the calories of course). A sandwich, chips, juice pouch, banana, and cookies!

I used this free pattern to make the sandwich and chips. However if you do use this pattern it takes a lot of work resizing because it prints too small. So I ended up just using the pattern for the bread and chip bag because I got frustrated with the resizing and printing it out to see if it was the right size business. The sandwich can either be a peanut butter and jelly sandwich or a bologna,cheese,lettuce, and tomato sandwich depending on the toppings added.

I used this site for both the lettuce and tomato slices since it prints the perfect size. I just traced a cd to make the bologna.

I then made up the juice pouch, banana, and chocolate chip cookies by myself. The banana was actually the hardest and took a lot of trial and error, but I finally got it to look good in the end. I wish I knew how to post patterns on blogger, but I don't. Otherwise I would post my patterns I used to help people out making the banana. If anyone has ideas let me know and I can try.

For the paper bag I referred to this tutorial. I love that it only took 3 minutes to make unlike that frustrating banana!

A special shout-out to Matt's mom for teaching me how to do french knots. She is amazing at embroidery and taught me. This came in handy with adding details on my felt food.

P.S. it looks better in real life. My photography skills are lacking and for some reason my bread looks lumpy. I'll have to take some lessons from my talented sister.
