Reusable Sandwich Bags

I was at Quilter’s Window, my local quilt shop, last week.  On display they had a cute little reusable sandwich bag.  I was in such shock when I saw that the pattern was in the book that I was giving away, “Sew the Perfect Gift”.    I had seen the sandwich bag in the book but somehow I missed how cute AND practical it was.  I decided I QUICK had to make one while the book was still at my house and I hadn’t given it away yet.  Here it is…

The original pattern suggests using clear vinyl in the inside of the bag.  At the quilt shop, they used a new to me product,  Therm o Web Iron On Vinyl.   The product can be ironed onto fabric and the fabric gets a clear coating on it so that it can be wiped with a wet cloth.

I ironed a piece on the iron on vinyl onto the fabric that I used as a liner.  It didn’t take a long time and was SO easy.  If you can set your iron to medium and count to eight, then you can use this product…it’s that easy.

I plan to make a couple more.  Our daughter Kalissa takes her lunch to work.  I am hoping she’ll like using these little bags for chips or other goodies.  If you missed the giveaway for the book, here’s the link.

Today I am linking up with Crazy Mom Quilts.

    When I saw the first picture, I thought that the bag looks just like something Kalissa would use. What a great concept and a wonderful new product.

    I just brought this book home from the library yesterday and devoured it! Nice projects in there, and your take on the bag is great!
