However, PUL is NOT food safe, so please find something else to line it with. Oil cloth is also not food safe, and I guess nylon isn't either (the nylon food bags I've seen are usually coated with some food safe plastic).
Just my two cents: There is alot of debate out there about whether PUL is food safe. It seems pretty even on both sides. True, the FDA says it's not, but then again, these same groups also touted for years how reusable and disposable plastic bottles are safe (BPA?) - which has now been refuted again that it's only harmful when heated, and that heating saran wrap was ok, then not, then only if it's not touching your food.  You really have to read all the opinions and studies about it (I'm a scientist, so I accessed my online journal database before buying PUL and read up on it.). Once you've done that, it's really up to you to make your own decision about using PUL with food. After my research, I saw no difference between the PUL I used, the PUL used in commercial products, and the cheap, disposable plastics I already use on a daily basis. My sandwiches are cold and kept cold, so I felt the chance of plastics seepage was very tiny. I also research commercial vinyls that are available and felt they were less safe than PUL. So, I made the decision to use PUL for my wraps. However, this is up to the individual who is making the wraps. I really think any fabric would work - it's all about the water-proofness level that you are going for. Here's the gist of what I'm saying: Use what you feel comfortable using and enjoy your reusable wrap!

That's awesome. <3 How do you keep your sandwich from drying out before lunchtime though?
My sandwiches never get dried out - they're pretty well sealed in inside the wraps. I also keep them in the fridge, so that helps as well.

i was just wondering where you find cute pul prints. i have searched online and can only find plain pul?

Thanks guys for all the compliments! These are working really well!
