Crafty? Make Your Own!

If you looked at the
reusable sammy baggies in my recent post and thought, "Hey, I could do that!", you'll want to check out these instructions on How To Make a Reusable Sandwich Wrap.

According to the website, these "fun, functional sandwich wraps give you a reusable alternative to plastic baggies, plus they are a snap to make. After each use, they can be wiped clean with a damp cloth or tossed in with the rest of the laundry."

I don't know about a snap (I routinely sew my sleeves together trying to make a napkin), but they sure are cute!

Thanks, Angie!

Cool! I want to make my own lunch box sammy bag for sure- though, do you need a special fablic/cloth and those push-buttons? Thanks! :)

>>do you need a special fabric/cloth and those push-buttons?

You'll have to follow the link and read the pattern for all the details. It looks like they use velcro. :-)

I still think Eco Lunch Gear http://www.ecolunchgear.com has the best product. Wipeable! Washable! Leak-less! Organic cotton, pvc-free nylon, made by a mamma looking to make her son's lunch a better place.

hey jennifer,

this isn't post-related (sorry all), but I wanted to get in touch with you. Could you shoot me an email at seth.fitnessguru@gmail.com?

OK, unrelated, but I haven't been to the blog in a while and looking through the archives, I saw that you use Yumm Sauce. I used to live in Eugene and miss Cafe Yumm, so I found a recipe for the sauce online (http://www.recipezaar.com/Yummy-Sauce-297251), but it's not quite right. Wondered if you'd ever tried to make your own and if so, if you'd share the recipe.

Jennifershmoo said...

Yes, I've tried that same recipe! You're right, I think it's totally missing something and I can't put my finger on it. I've also messed around with making a kind of yumm sauce with no oil, also with no success.

If I do come up with a good one I'll share it here. In the meantime, I'm lucky enough to have family living in Eugene. :-) Let me know if you figure it out!

Snaps are really easy to put on. All you really need is a snap setter (a little plastic thingy) and a hammer. Now that's my kind of sewing =)

I've been wanting to get some sandwich wraps, but now I think I'll make some! Now to acquire a sewing machine...:)

Green Fundraising said...

Not to plug out products, but we sell a Wrap-n-Mat that is great for sandwiches also and washes easily. I love how many options people are bringing to others' attention instead of plastic baggies! Good Post...

I just made the sandwich wraps last night! I made 6 for a cost of about 18$, gave four away as gifts to friends 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.

I love your blog. I have two blogs. I am not vegan, but try to be a few times a week. I tried to go cold turkey but craved it more. I don't eat much beef, a bit of chicken but mostly I eat fish. shame on me, I know..I try.
