Last February I attended a nanotechnology conference (actually it was three in one, ACMM22/AOMC10/ICONN2012, but that is another story). For the first time in a very long long time, the conference bag was made out of a pretty fabric. It was inspired in aboriginal paints. At the time I wasn´t sure what I want to do it, but it was to pretty to miss, so I asked if I could have a few extra bags. I ended up with 3 bags (for the embarrassment of my colleagues)*
I loved Sarah´s lunch bag, and I though I would use my “conference bags” to make a nice “lunch bag”. So this bag is made of out almost entirely of these conference bags (I used two): inside & outside, and even the handles**.
* My colleagues want now one lunch bag!
** I put leftover fabric from my chair cover to give some body to the bag.
