Shop Update: Reusable Sandwich Wraps

New to the shop this week are reusable sandwich wraps. These will be made out of many different fabrics, but so far these four are available:
These are an item that can help to reduce lunchtime waste. I did a test run of a peanut butter and jelly sandwich, where I left it in the wrapper for 8 hours. The bread stayed soft and the sandwich tasted fresh.

I have been researching what fabrics are food-safe to use as a lining and decided to use ripstop nylon, as it is waterproof, lightweight and washable. I think being able to throw it into the washing machine is an important benefit.

Hmm, those look even easier to get a sandwich in than a plastic bag. I love that you can lay it open and then close the flaps. I feel like I'm quite often stuffing sandwiches in the plastic bags. Love the fabrics!

What a great idea. Your stuff looks so professional, I am totally in awe of your sewing ability. Mine is obviously homemade.

This is such a great idea! And it would be a better crumb-catcher than a plain sandwich baggie too.
