A friend of mine asked me if I knew how to make re-usable sandwich bags. I didn't, but that got me interested in how they are made and if I wanted to get into it. I found a few great tutorials and then ran to Joanns, Hobby Lobby, and my quilt store! I made 2 different kinds and I have an idea for another way to make them. But that is going to have to wait till tomorrow. I am tired and need to get to bed. Here is what I have so far.
This is my first one. It is made with laminated cotton from Moda. I left the bread in it for 3 1/2 hours and it was still fresh and good. Then I washed the bag and found it to be completely water proof! This is a great bag for sandwiches and snacks. I found this tutorial on Craft Buds. Check it out!
My second sandwich bag is more of a wrap. I love it because it could work as a place mat for my kids lunch at school. Then they don't have to lay their food on the dirty tables there. I used canvas on the outside and waterproof nylon on the inside. I got this tutorial from Chica and Jo, check them out too! Both sites are great and walk you through every step!
