Insulated Tote

I sure am having fun with all the insulated bags.  I came across a great pattern for an insulated shopping bag for frozen groceries.  I HAD to make one.  The original pattern used a velcro closure.  However, I had a zipper that was burning a hole in my stash...LOL!  (Oh! All right....I'm not skilled at putting zippers in, but I'm learning. For some reason I felt a strong need to use this zipper.)  So, I took that insulated shopping bag idea and combined a few different techniques from different patterns and online tutorials, changed the deminsions to fit the fabric I had (and zipper--I don't know why but I never feel comfortable cutting a zipper...strange but true.), then made my bag.

Look at that zipper closure!
We use the insulated bags to take family lunches for road trips and/or field trips. I used outdoor canvas for the bag and rip stop nylon for the inside. 
Have a great day!
