A long time ago, Ms. ADB requested a "green bag", a la the original. Since I both procrastinate and double dip for presents, I waited to make this for her as a birthday present. The first lunch bag I made mirrors the size and shape of a classic brown paper bag, which is nice for aesthetics but not so nice for practicality. You really can't fit more than one Tupperware or container in it. Or a drink. It can only comfortably fit small bags of snacks, which 1) promotes only eating delicious things such as Ritz Bitz sandwiches, Oreos and honey roasted peanuts and 2) causes you to waste a lot of disposable sandwich baggies. Not good.
So I went for this massive sized bag. Maybe a little too massive, but it is much more functional than the original. And... (wait for it) ... ... it's waterproof.
Thank you, thank you.
I fought for quite some time with this iron-on vinyl and for a few moments, feared complete failure of the waterproofed birthday gift... but alas, I persevered and now ADB can feel completely at ease transporting leaky containers, condensation-covered water bottles and, if the mood strikes her, wet dish sponges, water balloons or a small Super Soaker with a faulty pressurized reservoir system. She can do all this, because her lunch bag is waterproof.
It's a big birthday week/month. Happy Birthday Dad!
