I love those! I defneed to get me a few.  Grin

Angelofmusic, if the shower curtain works I'd love to know. I might have to try that.

I'm planning to give it a go this weekend, so I'll post and let you know how it works out...

I absolutely love these! I will be trying to find some peva type fabric tonight (or a shower curtain) and try my hand at making these.

Is there a pattern or just freehand it?

i've just made a pattern with my own measurments. The first one was totally just wingin' it. i will add that peva is a pain in the but to sew! i always cover it with tracing paper so that it moves freely under the presser foot! worrks like a charm and eaisly tears away!

I have been making bags like this for a while and used the grocery bags you get in the freezer aisle to carry the frozen food home. To be honest, no idea if you get these in the US as well, but here in Germany you get these bags for about 0,50 a pice and I get about 5 to 6 snack bags out of them. They are totally food safe and keep everything really cool and fresh. I usually bring sliced cucumber to work as a snack and never had any spilling or anything.

And no food or crumbles ever got caught in the velcro either.

IMO - best. idea. EVER! I love mine! And I also love your fabric choices!

Thanks. The only freezer type bags in the grocery sections are just double lined brown bags. :/ lame.

I made some of these this weekend using a cheap PEVA shower curtain liner from Big Box Mart. They were excellent! Very easy to sew (much easier than PUL) and laid flat. I accidentally melted a bit of one with my iron when I was ironing a fold into a piece of fabric, but otherwise no problems at all with the shower curtain. I would recommend for larger, flat items (like sandwich wraps) adding some cross stitching (or a quilting pattern) to the middle to keep it laying flat.   Smiley

What about those plastic table clothes?  Do you think that will work? Seeing that they are meant to be next to food. I would love to make these for my kids, especially now that summer is here and we have a lot of outings.  It will be so easy to find so and so's bag.
