My Lunch Bag 18" Doll Clothes Pattern

4 reviews   |  

This fully lined lunch bag is perfect for those days when your doll wants to bring his or her lunch to school. The zipper provides for a generous opening, making easy access to lunch. There is an option to put a loop inside to hold a water bottle or thermos and an outside pocket for notes or milk money.

This PDF sewing pattern by JenAshley Doll Designs is designed to fit 18" dolls such as American Girl®.

Recommended Fabrics: light to medium weight woven fabric such as quilters' cotton. Not suitable for stretch fabrics.

Supplies Needed:

  • 1/4 yard or fat quarter woven fabric (You will have fabric left over).
  • 1/4 yard or fat quarter woven fabric for lining
  • Nylon zipper (I recommend a zipper that is 12 inches or longer because it makes construction easier. For the example project, I used a 14-inch zipper and cut off the excess after it was installed.)
  • Optional for ribbon handle: 4.5 to 5-inch piece of 3/8 - 1/2 inch wide ribbon for the handle or two pieces of different widths for layering 
  • Optional: Light to medium weight fusible interfacing for the bag and/or lining pieces

Lunch bag for 18" dogs

Even though the item was very small it was relatively easy to make. I would caution others to be sure that you have the correct edges of the back lined up before stitching since the back piece is long. I would have been better off trimming the back to size before I stitched the 2nd side. I love all the bags that JenAshely design. Talented ladies!

Great scrapbuster

Really love this pattern, very clear instructions and it comes together very quickly, I do recommend reading through all the instructions first and take your time when sewing in the top and base pieces which can be a little tricky initially. Although it definitely is one of the easiest and quickest zipper insertions I've sewn. So far I've one completed and another 2 cut out waiting to sew up, it's definitely a great pattern for using up those scraps that are too big to throw away, but are too small to do much with.

Cute Accessory!

This was fun and very interesting to construct. With clear instructions, it turned out great! I highly recommend trying this one.

Lunch Bag

It's just too cute. Remember how much fun you had with the accessory sets -- well this one will bring you that same excitement. It just makes me want to make little food items to go with it and plan scenes. It's a perfect catalyst for play. And all the more pleasure because I made it myself. It was the first time I have made a zipper bag. Wonderfully clear instructions. Makes me want to make one for myself to match!
