I love chalkboard paint since it can instantly make most surfaces into a chalkboard, so when I can came across this tutorial for a Chalkboard Lunch Bag from Linda Facci via Fresh Home Ideas, I was excited!
This bag is great to write a little message to your child, whether it be a little not of encouragement or to remember to eat your veggies ;)


Black-board oilcloth (purchased at Bell’occhio)
Straight pins
Pinking shears
Sewing machine
Velcro sticker

Step 1: Cut two 9 1/2 x 13 pieces of black-board oilcloth

Step 2: Pin right sides together and sew 3 sides, leaving a short side open. I cut the “open side” with pinking shears (not shown). Make sure to reinforce the corners by backstitching at the beginning and end of the seam

Step 3:
Pull the bag at its sides so a diamond shape is formed on top. Mark 2 inches from point of diamond to middle of diamond and sew across. Reinforce seams

Step 4: Cut off the corners about 1/4-inch from seam

Step 5: Turn the bag right side out. For closure, attach one half of a Velcro sticker to the top portion of one side, roll down and attach the other half to the other side

Step 6: Write a sweet note to your kids

Step 7: And just wipe away at the end of the day with a damp cloth
