This is so easy! The big tip I can give is use the walking foot if you have one. I did a 1/4 inch seam allowance...

Cut 13 1/2 inch square, then trim the ends so it looks like below (or you can round them, this just helps it fold). I made a pattern out of newspaper, because I had to trace it onto the vinyl DON"T PIN THE VINYL). Cut one each of outer fabric(pretty), vinyl, and inner fabric (plain)



On the right side of the outer fabric, sew a 1 3/4 inch piece of the rough velco about 1 3/4 inches from the edge and centered.



on the opposite side, hem the other peice in, this will stick out when the project is done.


sandwich the fabrics, outer, vinyl, lining color (will be under vinyl)



and then instead of using pins, use hair clippies to keep in place



sew leaving one side open (NOT THE TOP OR BOTTOM with the velcro.)




clip corners well, then turn right side out



hem up the opening. You may be tempted to top stich the whole thing, which you can, just go slow.


EASY!!!

at joanns in the home decor section, but it is super cheap at walmart, I always buy the thinnest. I think I got 6 wraps from 1 yard of vinyl and my scraps.

very clever!! Tell me, is it machine washable (I assume not dryer-able of course) - also, in your picture you show it closed but if you were actually wrapping a sandwich you would fold in the sides first, right? Thanks for the tutorial!!

fold the sides first, then bottom then top. I have never washed mine, other then washing the vinyl after using... the outsides just don't get that dirty.

That is great but what about the off gasing from the vinyl? This has been discussed before. I just can't remember if anything was found that would be safe against food...

peppermom - you can also use a freezer bag instead of vinyl.

Instead of vinyl you could try a fabric called PUL (found on the internet).  It's fabric with a waterproof backing.

PUl is also sold at Hancocks now - Yeah. I'm a little slow on this one.  I just made one out of PUL and cotton and am testing it tonight to see how fresh my piece of bread is in the morning.... I figure if it can be fresh after 14 hours then it will be perfect for lunchtime..
At Hancocks you have to ask for BabyDry - it is $9.99 a yard or $10.99 a yard depending on the thickness of the pul I suppose... I got the thinner of the two - and you can sew through it and it is very machine washable since it is intended for diapers and whatnot....

Sorry it took me so long to add my two cents on this one!

PUL is even cheaper than that if you buy it from co-ops, because the members of the co-ops are working together to meet the minimums set by the manufacturers....

I suppose it is nice that Hancock is selling it now, given that back in the day I couldn't find it anywhere in a brick and morter store....even if their mark-up is kinda sucktastic...

I'm wondering if one could use the fused grocery bags on the inside, if you wash them (the heat from the iron would sterilize if there was anything on there, wouldn't they?) first?  I have washed things made with the fused grocery bags before, and it seems like it worked well enough....then you could extend the recycling going on and further keep trash out of landfills.

i have been meaning to make sandwich wraps too for my son who is starting school this year , his school has a litter free policy !

i dont mean to be a wet blanket but i have been researching it a bit myself and it seems PUL isnt really recomended for food either :/   Embarrassed  UGH ! but i did see on another forum someone suggesting coating the fabric with beeswax ! genius and they also linked to http://users.sa.chariot.net.au/~dna/beeswax.htm#cloth that tutorial ... umm dont know it that link works :s i am new to this LOL anyway i am gonna give it a go next week when his special lunch fabrics arrive i will let you know how i go

I love this! I think I might whip one up this weekend from the suggested freezer bag. Or might just suck it up and get some vinyl! I breathe in more bad stuff from pollution outside than I ever would from contamination via plastics >.>

I have seen oilcloth used for the inside of sandwitch wraps.  Long ago I found a tute online for making oilcloth.

You wrap a sandwich inside it, kind of like how butchers wrap a hunk of meat.  You set the sandwich in the center of the wrap (vinyl side up), then fold the sides into the middle (over the sandwich), then the bottom, and last, the top.  It's kind of like making your own sandwich envelope.
