I was hesitant...I'm not sure if I should put this in the homewares section, but since the sandwich wrap goes with the lunch bag and the lunch bag is a bag... and the sandwich wrap holds a sandwich...I'm sticking it in here! 

I think these sandwich wraps are just the greatest things! No more plastic baggies in the trash! And they are much cuter than plastic baggies any day of the week.  What do you think?

Very nice. What fabric did you use for the wrap?

I used 100% cotton and sandwiched some canvas in between to catch the little sandwich leaks.  I've seen some with vinyl, but I'm trying to stay away from plastics.

How fresh was your bread after it was wrapped up for a few hours? Reason I ask is that I had heard from one other person that they made a sandwich wrap using fabric only and that it did not hold up well - the bread was not so tasty after a few hours...
I have been wanting to make some for my kids and am thinking of buying the pul fabric from Hancocks next week when I can use my 40% off coupon....
I know, I know I should just make one already and see for myself but I am curious....

I have been thinking about making some of these also. I make lunches the night before instead of the morning of. How fresh will the bread be? Maybe I can use a fabric with a really tight weave to hold in the freshness. Would that work?

I second and third the posts about requesting reviews... How was your sandwich??  And the bag looks so much nicer then anything you could find mass produced.

The sandwich held up well with minimal dryness for a good three hours.  I have since purchased some PUL fabric for sandwich wraps and that works astonishingly well! No drying out of the bread at all for many hours. I still have more PUL, so I hope to be making more soon.

Does Joanne Fabrics sell pul?

Joanne's didn't even know what I was talking about when I called them. I ordered online. Most of the PUL outlets online also sell diaper making supplies I noticed.

As for a pattern, I used an octagon, though a circle works fine too, about 12 inches in diameter.

I've heard that Hancock Fabrics now carries PUL.  It's called "baby dry" if you have to ask for it.

So PUL is safe to use with food? Or will it be in between the layers of fabric?

This is from http://www.celticclothswholesale.com/pages/PULFabric.htm
PUL, otherwise known as polyurethane laminated fabric, is a lot more technical than just a plastic backing on fabric.  The original application is the medical field, and it is still used for this purpose.  Like cloth diapers, it is used to replace disposable products with reusable.  It provides the waterproof barrier needed in the medical field that can survive multiple institutional washings.  The laminate can also be autoclaved, which is a very high heat steam sterilization process, to make it safe for reuse even after it comes into contact with blood or other bodily fluids.

I personally used it next to the sandwich, but I suppose it is up to personal discretion.

I love the wraps and the adorable little lunch bag.  It is SO cute.  What size is it?

I made some zipper pouches to replaces ziploc bags months ago.  I used rip-stop.  It does not keep the food real fresh, so I made some using rip-stop on the inside layer and good quality quilting fabric for the outer layer.  That made a big difference.

Because of the issues with Chinese imports being so full of lead, I only use rip-stop that is made the US.  I don't want lead touching my kids' food!

my hvac service tech hubby had some leftover foam duct insulation with a foil outer layer, so i made a 2am insomnia-driven prototype lunch bag with it... the foil degraded from use, so i suggested fleece in between the quilters cotton. should work...

i just have to make some bias trim for the top of the bag and its done..

I'm bookmarking this! Great idea! I hate using so many ziplock bags for my sandwiches.

By the way.. is that a tomato and mayo sandwhich?! Not too sure about that one Smiley

Wow! These are fantastic! I can't wait to make one of these. My sons go back to school next week. Teacher told us today that since they have a late lunch, they will have a snack. So I need a set for lunch and something separate for snacks! Glad to see these. Thanks for sharing and for the inspiration. And the earth thanks you for not using and discard all those paper bags and plastic bags. Besides this is so much cuter!

Hi
I just bought some of the PUL, and there is a shiny side and a soft fabric side.....which side is supposed to go towards the sandwich?  Which side will actually touch the food? Huh

 I have never tried it before and I really want to make some sandwich wraps!
Thanks for your help!
