I did a little research on PEVA, and here's some of what I found:

polyethylene vinyl acetate (PEVA) a copolymer of polyethylene and EVA used in shower curtains, body bags  (VERSATILE!)

http://www.vitafutura.com/curtains/plastic.asp

http://www.duluthtrading.com/78073.aspx

I have found numerous references to PEVA being FDA-approved for food use, but then again, they also cleared BPA for use. Sad

I love how these look, and how practical they are, so I may invest in a shower curtain and give it a go.

Thanks again for sharing and inspiring!

These are so great! I've always wanted to make something like this, and they look relatively simple to create. Nice!

My girls would love to use these for dance and school snacks.  Did you use a pattern or can you give us a tutorial on them?  Thanks a million!

Thanks for the info! I'm a bit unsure about using a shower curtain because of the smell they have when you first take them out of the package. Whew man, chemical smell! I may still try it out eventually though, it beats the heck out of reusing sandwich bags! (not that we reuse the icky ones, but we do use them for more than one sandwich)

You know, when the ads specify "food grade", it makes me wonder. There are food and non-food grade versions of many things, including silicone and ceramic glazes, and this may be another case of that.

They're still a wonderful idea, Stellarcheri! Thanks again!

i personally find peva to be safe, of course, after I did research on the material myself. Its FDA approved and i use it for my baby's snack food. All i can advise is that if you are purchasing something similar or making these yourself... do your research and decide for yourself! Cheesy

By the way for all those asking where i purchased it from... There is a local fabric store here that has it. They also have a peva lined polyester. Never seen this stuff anywheres else. And even tried to find someo online just now... fail. If shower curtains are 100% peva i don't see why that would be any different.

I've used PUL lined fabric (it's another material that people have a disagreement on food safe-ness) but it's so thin that it rips easy! So, I bought a 100% PEVA shower curtain liner at Big Box Mart last night for about $3.00. I'm going to give it a try as soon as I finish making costumes for our local theatre. Smiley Thanks for this great idea!
