A DIY Color Punch for your Lunch

DIY // Watercolor Lunch Bags for Back to School

Yesterday was an awesomely long day for me… I wrapped up a whole slew of projects, that I can’t wait to share… And one in particular, may have involved setting up a ladder in the middle of the road to get the best angle, in between cars driving by.

It was so much fun. But man, am I tired. And my brain is still feeling a little fried this morning, so I’ll keep this short and sweet…

I recently made these watercolor canvas lunch bags for Momtastic to dive into back to school season. Obviously, these are great for kids, but I also think they’re minimal enough to work for adults as well. I’d use a lunch bag like this in a heartbeat. Though, I’d probably go with a more subdued color pallete (i.e. black and grey).

How To Make Watercolor Lunch Bags

What colors would you choose for lunch bags like these?

these lunch bags are so fun and unique. I’ve already pinned them to give them a go, myself. I think shades of tan and brown with maybe some indigo mixed in would be adult appropriate. though, I’m not much of an adult in spirit, so maybe I’m way far off 😉

Thanks Arielle. Oh, indigo would be really pretty, I bet.

I was just thinking about how I need a lunch bag now that I’m going to the studio a few days a week! This = perfect, and I’d totally rock the bright colors. Though a black and gray one sounds pretty awesome too.

You should totally make one of these, Kel. You could fill it will tiny piñata tacos and hamburger balloons. :)

This is so cute! Though I personally just throw my lunch in my purse and go, (classy… I know), I think this is so cute for my nieces and maybe to stash in my purse to keep cute, functional and hip! Loving this trend.

Lovely!
Will it be good if I make this in felted wool?
since felted wool resists dirt well, thus woolen bags do not need to be cleaned as often as manmade synthetic ones…. also wool has been felted that can clean with no shinkage and reshape so easily…

I’ll make one in wool…

Thanks for the great idea!
