Hi everyone!  So basically I've gone on a huge kick with making reusable sandwich bags.  I make them with zippers so everything stays super fresh (I've kept bread in them for a couple days and it doesn't go stale!) and so crumbs don't get in velcro (which drives me insane).  The inside is any variety of vinyl or waterproof fabric I can find (lately I've been using a super cute pink gingham vinyl that I love), and I've been using cottons for the outside.  You can toss them into the wash, line dry them (I've even put them into the drier and they're fine but I'm guessing over time it wouldn't do them good) and they're as good as new, but usually I just shake out the crumbs.  I hate going through so many plastic bags, especially since I'm a snacker so I like bringing snackums with me when I'm out and about, and this solves my problem! 

Anyways, too many words!  All of these are the reusable sandwich bags except the black one, which is a small wristlet I made with a fuzzy black thick outer material and a lovely cream satin on the inside, complete with credit card slots and a divider (not that it's really necessary in a pouch so small, lol). 

Feed back is always appreciated!  I have just started playing around with a lightbox I made, so any tips would be nice!

Oh wow!!!!

I really want to make some of these... are they just like a standard lined zip pouch... but with vinyl? Do you have any tips/tutorial? I reallllly love what you've done here! They'd be so handy - seeing as we're big snackers in my house. And I have a hungry 2 year old! Are they just regular zippers?

You've just revolutionised my tote bag!

Thanks for the kind comments!  They are just regular lined zip bags with vinyl on the inside.  I had to experiment around a bit to get them to work, but as long as you line everything up all right, don't use a super bulky zipper and pin well to make sure nothing slips then it should be fine.  Have fun making them!

What a wonderful, green thing to make.  I'm going to run out and get some vinyl and make a few of these!

Great idea!  I may have to get over my fear of zippers.  I have used zippers, but it's been a while.  I haven't made any bags or purses in a while.  I suppose it's time to get back to it.  I've been busy lately making jewelry.  thanks.
