My new lunch bag for my new job!

I made this lunch bag using a tutorial from the Pink Penguin. I think it turned out really nice. It has a vinyl lining in case of spills and a Cordura nylon base so it wont pick up messes from the frig at work. The top has a draw string cover to keep my lunch contents hidden from view. I lined it with fusible batting and the vinyl was backed with a poly batting. It isn't really insulated but will keep it cool until I place it in the frig at work. My embellishment was a little yoyo flower with wool leaves. The embroidery I actually did on the sewing machine using the double stitch to look like backstitching. My inspiration for little flower came from this book.This is a really cute book with lots of nice gift ideas. I really like the look of hand stitching but if I can duplicate it on the sewing machine that's my choice for doing it. Hope you like my show and tell for Lush Friday. I know I didn't get it done till Saturday, but it's ready for my first day of work Monday!
