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.
