We have been using reusable cotton sandwich bags for almost 7 years now.
And I have a complaint.
Well ... actually 2 complaints.
1) The sandwich bags are often too small.
2) Since they are marketed for school lunches, the fabrics are often juvenile in nature. Which is great for an 8 year-old. My AARP card-caring husband would like something more mature.
So .... I've got this new fancy-dancy sewing machine and I've got my sewing room oh-so-close-to-organized..... it was time to solve my complaints.
I bake our own bread and who knows what size of loaf it might be!!! It might be too long, too high ... I might use a tortilla as a wrap or we may use a 6" hoagie for a sandwich. And there have been times, that I have struggled to get the sandwich in the bag even after I have cut it.
And then ..... I end up using a plastic bag or wrap.
That just defeated the purpose.
So the sandwich bags I made are 2" wider and an 1" taller.
Complaint number 2:
Adult fabric choices....
I LOVE fun, funky fabrics! And these bags help me use up some scraps from previous projects.
This one has a rick-rack edging.
I think this is kitchy without being cutesie! It reminds me of 1950's kitchen wallpaper!
And I was there!!
I think any dog lover would love this bag.
So these (and a few more) are hanging out in the Summer Kitchen. Brown bag essentials for the gray-haired crowd!
You ask about Honey's sandwich bag????????
Yea ............ maybe I'll make that tomorrow!!!
