Fabric Salad

Green goodness for quilters and sewists

Bye-bye baggies

My daughter pointed it out to me first: Using plastic baggies every day in her lunch was really wasteful. Hard to argue with an 8-year-old tree-hugger, so we bought a few reusable cloth bags for her sandwiches and snacks. Anything that doesn’t fit in the bags goes into a reusable container.

The High Fiber ups the eco-quotient in their snack bags by lining them with unbleached organic cotton fabric. And, they’re adorable, too.

    I just made the sandwich wraps last night! I made 6 for a cost of about 18$, gave four away as gifts to frdneis who will now think I’m insane, and kept two for us. I used an iron on, food safe vinyl (at least, the store assured me it is food safe!), and cute cottons. The full project took about 4 hours of making the pattern, ironing and sewing, but we won’t count the time I spent realizing I had run out of an ingredient and running back to the store swearing. It was very easy- an experienced sewer could probably do it in 3 hours.
