I made these for my MIL, who brings lunch to work every day, always a sammy.  I thought I would make her some of these so that she wouldn't use so many plastic bags, be a little greener  Wink and have a pretty placemat with napkin at her desk when she ate lunch.  They came out pretty good, I need a little help doing bias tape on the edges, but over all I'm happy and she loves them.  My mom requested some for her for when she makes lunch  Grin

Here is all of them in a happy group shot

Here is a blurry close up of the napkinring I sewed to the top corner and the matching napkin rolled in it.

The inside with the vlecro, which has since come off, it was supposed to be the heat kind, iron on never to come off again, yeah right lol.  She says the wraps stay closed in her lunch sack and her sammys are always fresh.

Yay! I love this. And then you just throw them in the wash when you get home! Although, with my luck I might accidently bite into some fabric softener one day--heehee. This is really awesome, though. Kudos to you!  Grin

These are great.  I'd love to make some.  I feel really guilty when I take my sandwiches in baggies, because containers take up too much room in my backpack!  Would you be so kind as to provide instructions/tutorial or even just the dimensions you used?

I used a 12"x12" square and used bias tape around the edges.  I bought 2 charm packs, it's a package of 5 quilters fat quarters, I didn't use one fat quarter from each package.  I cut out the one 12" square from each of the 4 fabrics, then put two wrong side together, so I had two wraps, then sewed the bias tape around.  For the napkins I took the biggest rectangles of two of the scraps and then the inside material for the bottom strip, so that they came out bistro style, two layers.  

Here are some pics.  I'm eventually going to toss up a tutorial on my blog....

This is the dimension of the wrap, it's big enough to wrap the large sized bread.

Here are the wraps awaiting the bias tape
This is the dimension of the napkins
This is a pic of the napkins, just turned inside out, about to get an ironing of thier lives lol, then I sewed around the edges.  

I hope this gives you a good idea of how easy they are to make.

Great idea!

you know, if you put the napkin ring on the bottom flap and put button holes on the others so that when you closed it you pulled the napkin ring through the button holes then put the napkin in, it would hold it closed without all that velcro....

i think..

I know what I want to smell like when the giant alien bunnies come calling
