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.
