These lunch or to-go bags are bigger than they look in the photograph.
There were 3 colour versions shown in the tutorial, but it is the same pattern.
The Crochet Lunch Bag is a decent size bag measuring 9" wide by 12" tall and 3.5" thick.
If I were to do this for a child or even for myself for that matter, I would choose the right colour of Lily Sugar'n Cream Cotton that best suits my own personality. Kids who get involved in the creation process are more than likely to use this.
For the kid version, consider adding flower or applique motifs to the exterior of the bag.
Finally, if I were to change one thing on the bag, I would not use the grommets. I wouldn't use them because I wouldn't know where to find them. I would get creative and attach the handles in a different way. That's just me being partially lazy and wanting to simplify the project.
