  • How to make a lunch box. Rigid Manga Bag With Dinosaur - Step 1
    Step 1

    I bought a rigid box (similar lunch box) with handle and opening clip.

    Dimension:
    - BASE : 25.4 CM
    - HEIGHT : 19.7 CM
    - DEPTH : 10 CM

    Step 2

    I made some paper-models on the inside of the purse.
    I got the gray fabric (plaid) and I cut following paper-models (remember to add about 2 cm at the edges).

    I added a pocket inside the dimensions are 3 CM X 1.5 CM (1.5 cm folded 'cause I insert the elastic in the upper border of the pocket)

    Step 3

    I made two triangles to sticking to the sides of my lining grey fabric that proves the opening of 7 cm (in the middle).

    The measures of my triangle is
    BASE: 13 CM
    CENTER: 7 CM
    up to zero (LIKE A PIZZA'S SLICE)

    I sewed my triangles and I glued with fabric glue the inside fabric (LEAVE ABOUT 1.5 CM ON THE HIGH SIDES - NO GLUE)

  • Step 4

    I made other paper-models for the exterior of the handbag and following these I cut, first a thin foam rubber and then my outer fabric (leaving 2 cm from the edges).

    ALL SIDES

  • Step 5

    I stitched along the folds of the bag on the 2 cm border that I left previously of all sides.

    On the curves of the handbag remember to bend the longer side under the shorter; And sewn above the folded rectangles to hide the joints.

    I sewed the pieces of leather around the handle and around the opening clips.

    And this is the result
