So PUL is safe to use with food? Or will it be in between the layers of fabric?

This is from http://www.celticclothswholesale.com/pages/PULFabric.htm
PUL, otherwise known as polyurethane laminated fabric, is a lot more technical than just a plastic backing on fabric.  The original application is the medical field, and it is still used for this purpose.  Like cloth diapers, it is used to replace disposable products with reusable.  It provides the waterproof barrier needed in the medical field that can survive multiple institutional washings.  The laminate can also be autoclaved, which is a very high heat steam sterilization process, to make it safe for reuse even after it comes into contact with blood or other bodily fluids.

I personally used it next to the sandwich, but I suppose it is up to personal discretion.

I love the wraps and the adorable little lunch bag.  It is SO cute.  What size is it?

I made some zipper pouches to replaces ziploc bags months ago.  I used rip-stop.  It does not keep the food real fresh, so I made some using rip-stop on the inside layer and good quality quilting fabric for the outer layer.  That made a big difference.

Because of the issues with Chinese imports being so full of lead, I only use rip-stop that is made the US.  I don't want lead touching my kids' food!

my hvac service tech hubby had some leftover foam duct insulation with a foil outer layer, so i made a 2am insomnia-driven prototype lunch bag with it... the foil degraded from use, so i suggested fleece in between the quilters cotton. should work...

i just have to make some bias trim for the top of the bag and its done..
