I want to ride my bike more in 2010! I think I'd ride it even more if I made one of these!

The pattern can be found online at Evil Mad Scientist. [bicycle lunch bag pattern] [dollar store version of bicycle lunch bag]

Project Estimate:

  • 2 placemats, $1 each
  • Velcro-style tape, $1
  • Velcro-style cable ties, $1
  • Buttons, on hand or $1

Total: $4 and up
