Taylor drew these pics & later we decided we would make fabric sandwich bags and he decided he wanted to add his artwork to his baggie. So, we put them together, I took a picture & did a little editing in picasas photo editing program & will print this out on an iron on printable fabric to be ironed/sewn onto his baggie. I love his artwork & think he's amazing & think this turned out perfect
HOW TO a very rough guide at making your own
Materials needed: *1/4yd will make about 2 baggies*
1/4yd cotton/quilting fabric of choice. washed dried & ironed
1/4yd rip stop nylon (we asked at the store & this was found in the "outdoor" type fabrics) DO NOT IRON RIP STOP NYLON!!! THIS WILL MELT!!!
Thread & Velcro in coordinating colors
For our pattern we used a ziplock type baggie and measured length & width & added 1/2" for seams. Measure this on your fabrics and cut out (next time I'll use a ruler to help keep my cutting straight)
put your rip stop & "pretty" fabric with right sides together. So you're sewing looking at the backs. *you'll have a long 2 layer rectangle at this point* Sew this on all sides leaving approx 1" so you can now reach in and pull your bag right side out!
Iron your baggie smooth on a medium/low heat cotton side up, pressing seams neatly. Becareful with this step, do not iron directly on rip stop nylon & do not have iron set to high it will melt the rip stop nylon!! That stuff is expensive you don't want to do that ;)
Determine where you want your velcro & sew this on
Now Fold your baggie, it's taking sammie bag shape now! Sew up the sides and across the end that you left open for pulling right sides.
*Viola* You're picnic, lunch box, on the go with grub ready!!
Next time I'd like to make one a little bigger to hold homemade (breadmachine) bread widths.
My friend made hers a bit larger & said she's going to use hers for a makeup pouch..cute!
Machine washable in warm/cold settings & either dry on low or just air dry
