Our bicycle frame lunch bag project is showing up in print in a couple of places. The August/September issue of Bust magazine is running the project along a couple of other bicycle-themed articles. It’s nice to see bicycle fashion spreads that don’t include spandex! I like the Schwinn they used for the article photo, too.
The bag is also included in a calendar for next year, Sewing: 2010 Day-to-Day Calendar, which just arrived in the mail today. There are two projects each week, and each project is printed on an 8 1/2″ x 11″ sheet of paper folded in half. The loose leaf sheets are stored in a magnetic closure box which converts to an easel, which also locks in place with a magnet. Magnetic boxes are awesome! The box would be great to reuse as a recipe box/stand, especially since you don’t have to use funny sized cards for it. The calendar format is a little odd, showing three or four days at a time, but that’s probably fine for a decorative calendar. The bike bag appropriately shows up on Earth day. I appreciated that the calendar included a project index, and that every project author was listed with their website so you can look up their other projects, too.
