I’ve sold the Very Hungry Caterpillar Bag in Etsy and have since then received queries on whether more are available in my store. This Very Hungry Caterpillar Bag is a lunch tote produced from leftover fabrics from Eponine’s quilt. It’s really the cutest fabric collection ever! What a wonderful collection for all fans of the Very Hungry Caterpillar classic by Eric Carle!
So, when my BFF ranted about how the Very Hungry Caterpillar Bag was sold in such a short period of time and how she missed the opportunity to own one, I decided to come up with a new design for her using patchwork squares from the Very Hungry Caterpillar fabric collection instead.
Oh, how I love the colours on this new tote bag!
Sharing some photos from my sewing process. I enjoyed every moment of my creation!

The design of this Very Hungry Caterpillar Bag looks complicated but it’s really quite an easy weekend project and can be whipped up in a couple of hours. I really should be putting together some tutorials soon to share with all my readers. But first, need to find time and prioritise in the midst of my crafting, blogging, juggling a full time job and coaching Eponine for her PSLE all at the same time! LOL
I’ve in the meantime shipped over some Very Hungry Caterpillar fabrics from the USA to make more tote bags and other products. If you are interested, they are available for pre-order now in my Etsy store at https://www.etsy.com/sg-en/listing/198821993/the-very-hungry-caterpillar-small-cotton. Delivery is likely to be end September.
