summer sewing spectacular project #2: sew a reusable sandwich wrapper

this tuesday we're stitching up some cuteness in the form of a ultra stylish yet practical wrapper to take a sandwich on the go, while being waste free at the same time! check out the impact you can have on making your lunch waste free here. just think how much trash is created every day during lunch time!

the pattern for this is very simple and perfect for sewing 101! we will be using vintage fabric for the outer layer and lining it with oilcloth or vinyl (i will have an assortment of choices!) of your choice. you will love this handy little thing! it will not only keep your bread fresh and be easy to wash/wipe off, but it's also great because when it opens up it turns into the perfect placemat. i already have one of these wraps for my son but am excited to have a second to put to use. i take my son to the zoo and beach weekly and we always take a picnic lunch. (jacksonville zoo = great, jacksonville zoo food choices for vegetarians = sucky) this will be perfect for our sandwiches or to stash the pita wedges for our hummus!

check out the finished product:

unbutton it, open the flap...

and behold, your tasty sandwich inside!
(in mine you'd find peanut butter and honey... yummm!)

as always, the craft is $5 and BYOB!

hope to see you tuesday, 6:30-8:30p.

*** if you have a sewing machine you can bring to share with the group, that would be great! thanks so much!

see you tuesday!

**postscript... i will be ending craft night this week promptly at 8:30pm because i've got to rush out to a concert (JENNY LEWIS!!! yay!!!) at the beach. thanks for your understanding. feel free to caravan out with us. it's going to be a great show, i'm sure!
