Inherited the crafting curse

I've had this idea in my head for sometime now and have been dying to try it out.  I made this pouch from a sandwhich baggie and sewed fabric on it.  Didn't turn out quite as spectacular as I imagined but it eliminated the need to insert a zipper.  It took me 2 seconds to put together.  Would make a great makeup bag or a fancy way for my son to carry a sandwhich to school!

Thats an awesome idea! I am thinking a great way to reuse sandwhich bags. My other half takes a sandwhich in his lunch to work every day, and we use too many baggies. I am thinking this would be cool. I wonder if it would be easy to clean, like wipe out the mayo that gets in DH's baggies  Cheesy

Oh wow, I've never seen that before. How exactly did you do it? I think this may be something that looks a lot more complicated than it really is. Tongue

I was just wondering about the "cleanout factor". I imagine it could be rinsed, and set in a dish rack to dry... but dishsoap might ruin the fabric, and the heat from a washer/dryer would melt the bag.

How insane would people think I was if I brought a dozen of those into the dry cleaner every couple of weeks?  Wink

I love it though!

Well my original intent was to use it for a makeup bag (eye pencil shavings mess up my bags) but if you were to use it for food i would probably just handwash it and let it air dry.

Lots of different size baggies means lots of uses...crayons, pens, craft itms, scrapbook items. OH why am I at work and not home so I can play?! Sad

A friend of mine actually hand washes her family's used sandwich bags.  I never even though of doing that before!  Anyway, I think if you rinsed one of these and let it air dry, you'd be golden.

I mustn't have been there the day creative brains like yours were handed out!  I would never have thought of attaching fabric to a ziplock bag!  I'm astounded by your brilliance.....any chance of a tute for how you did it please?
