Recycled Reusable Sandwich Bag

I came across this fun Tutorial at Noodleheads. Several of you have praticipated in my Upcycle Apron swaps. I saw this and said hey this looks like a lot of fun. I think I will try it. The only thing I would change is the inside of the bag. I would use that polyurethane coated nylon pack cloth. It has a long established roll in food safe bags for the outdoor sports folks. Or you could try food safe laminated cotton. I even read where women are using the inside plastic of Cereals boxes. I think one could fuse two or three of those together and have the perfect thicknesses. All I know for sure is what ever type of plastic you use it has to be food safe.

I found this awesome tutorial on how to make reusable bags using Mylar Snack Packaging. Source for getting Mylar Snack Packaging... many foods come in Mylar bags, especially food for snacking. Exp: Potato chips, Sun Chips, Oreos, Chips Ahoy's and so on.....

Please click on the photos to go to the web sites for the tutorials... I think the one using the Mylar is the best .. enjoy and if you make some bags share them with us ;)

Those are fun to make for the crafter, but for me, I love the reusable square tupper ware sandwich containers. They hold everything together and nothing falls out, but I do love those bags for making as gifts. I don't sew, but I enjoy looking at anything handmade ;-)
Hope you're feeling well today.
