Lunch is Served: Reusable Lunch Bags

Looking for a fun and functional way to make sure your lunch doesn’t get gobbled up by coworkers in the office fridge? Look no further than the Pink Toe Press reusable lunch bags made from oilcloth fabric.

These adorable totes are made from 100% polyester oilcloth. They are durable and easy to clean. Easy to store flat when empty, and secured with velcro (and a clothespin is included too) so that your lunch is safe in the fridge.

Oilcloth lunch bag“Retro Rose” is the most popular design!

All the other designs are quite cute too!   

Each bag is handmade by yours truly. Bags are each a little different due to the pattern variations. They are super cute and have a contrasting fabric on the sides.

Oilcloth lunch bag

There’s several designs available in my Etsy Shop. Each bag is sturdy and colorful. They come with a little eyelet in the corner to hang a nametag. They come with a paper tag, but you can get a more durable (matching!) oilcloth tag to really complete the classic look. You can use the name tag as a luggage tag as well!

And here are the tags: They are great for identifying luggage, lunch bags, even gym bags! Put one on your yoga bag too! They are currently 1/2 price when you purchase them with your lunch bag. What a deal!

Where the Unicorn Roam

If you hadn’t noticed from earlier posts, I’ve been on a bit of a hair-bow kick! I’ve been breaking into my vintage fabric stash and making some amazingly cute bows for hair of all lengths.

My current favorites are the Star Wars Bows (of course) and these cute Unicorn Bows. The fabric is a vintage fabric from the mid 1960’s to early 1970’s. The name on the selvage just says “Carousel”. I purchased it from a woman at the RoseBowl Flea Market in Pasadena who had a more than impressive collection of vintage fabrics for sale. I think that Flea Market is one of the things I miss most about LA, but I digress…

Unicorn Bow

They are currently for sale in my Etsy shop. Each bow is handmade by yours truly. I am currently working on a different style bow that does not have the seam along the edges. It’s a bit wider, but not as tall as this design. Stay tuned.

Alligator clips make for easy styling. The clips are good for a variety of hair lengths.

Kawaii Folded Fabric Hair Bows

Origami folded hair bowA classic red bow looks good with any hair color

Just in time for Valentine’s Day: Kawaii hair bows made from folded fabric. These are the perfect gift for ladies (or guys) who could use a fun new accessory.

For the last decade, I’ve had short hair. I started growing my hair out last year and it is now finally to the length where I can do a bit of an up-do. Unfortunately, I haven’t been able to find any accessories that fit my style and color preferences. So I made these cute bows to fill that gap!

Origami folded hair bowEach bow is carefully hand folded.

They are made from cotton fabric that I prepare and fold into the bow shape. They are then carefully pressed and secured to a felt backing. Each bow has an alligator clasp in the back and is quite durable despite its lovely appearance. There are currently two sizes available with an assortments of colors and patterns. Many of the patterned fabrics are from my collection of vintage fabrics, so there are limited quantities.

Origami folded hair bowCurrently available colors

The bows clip easily into any style hair. I like putting one on a ponytail, but you could use them in pigtails, short hair, long hair…the possibilities are endless! Check out Pink Toe Press for more information and to order one of your own!

They’d make a great Valentine’s Day gift!

Boo!

calavera tote bagJust in time for October, this new tote bag is great for the upcoming season!!!

Made from an original illustration, this design is printed on cotton canvas tote bags. Can you guess the design? That’s right! It’s a Calavera from Dia De Los Muertos, or a Mexican Sugar Skull from “Day of the Dead”. I hand-drew the design and processed it in to a silk screen. More photos to come, and perhaps more colors too?
