After about 12 months of use and several hand-washings, Genevieve's had a frayed spot. The handle on Ben's bucket had frayed in a few spots, but that was my fault for cutting off too much of the seam inside. In both, the vinyl tablecloth lining was totally shot, but it was a used tablecloth to begin with. I decided to renovate the lunch pails.

I got oilcloth this time, an orange kaleidoscope pattern to use in both. I thought I could make a more attractive pail for Genevieve, but I kept most of Ben's pail and just made a new liner for it.
I really appreciated LiEr's pattern all over again for its clear instructions and explanations. Much better than another self-published pattern that I used recently and will show you as soon as I get the project photographed.
