Just a bit of background info, I made this set for my Dad, he is an electronics engineer and draws circuit boards on a regular basis, hence my odd choice in fabric. I find getting fabrics I like for men in my family a nightmare!

I apolgise for the poor pics, it was late when I finished sewing these so the light was bad.

2 sandwich wraps and 2 flip top bags. I wanted to make more and some other stuff but there was a few flaws in the fabric


the 2 sandwich wraps


the 2 flip top bags

The circuit board is from a ZX Spectrum which was one of the first computers we ever owned in our house  Cheesy

Any comments appreciated.

How cute!  I love the fabric.  Glad you are making something useful.  My DH takes his lunch every day.  I send fabric lunch bags rather than plastic.  I've used fabric sandwich bags I made, but never sent any in his lunch.  Did you put any kind of lining to keep the sandwiches fresh?

I'm sure he will love his gift.  Great job!

I really like the sandwich wraps- they are very useful. I was wondering where you got that fabric. My husband is an electronic engineer and I think he would get a kick out of it. Great job!
