Unlike the old dorky children's lunchboxes, this Wood + Faulk DIY will help in creating an incredibly hip way to bring a lunch. The tutorial was created by Portland, Oregon-based tinkerer and designer Matt, who is the brains behind the stylish craft website Wood + Faulk. Inspired by the gorgeous designs found in Japanese leather craft books, Matt decided to create a small tote that ended up being the perfect size for carrying a lunch. Even if you don't need a lunch bag, the small tote is multipurpose.

The project uses leather and allows DIYers to brush up on the hand-sewing skills, as meticulous stitching was often used in Matt's Japanese craft books. By first downloading the pattern that is available on the Wood + Faulk website, users can experiment with modification or stick to Matt's separate flap design. Either way, this Wood + Faulk DIY is a dapper and mature way to bring a lunch to work. Stats for Leather Lunchbox Tutorials Trending: Older & Warm
