Make lunch, not trash! These fun, functional sandwich wraps give you a reusable alternative to plastic baggies, plus they are a snap to make. After each use, they can be wiped clean with a damp cloth or tossed in with the rest of the laundry.

What you’ll need:

  • 1/3 yard of 45-inch-wide woven polyurethane laminated fabric (PUL; see note below)
  • 1-inch length of 3/4-inch-wide Velcro tape
  • Thread in a coordinating color
  • Fabric shears
  • Ruler

Note: PUL refers to any fabric that has been laminated with polyurethane on one side to make it waterproof. These fabrics are often found at websites that sell fabric cuts for making diaper covers (such as www.diapercuts.com) as well as some larger chain fabric stores. One 20-inch x 21-inch “diaper cut” is enough to make one sandwich wrap.

1. Cut the pieces.

  Using the templates provided, cut one main wrap and two flaps from PUL.

2. Hem the edges.

  Beginning with the main wrap, with the wrong (coated) side facing up, fold 1/4 inch on one of the short, angled edges to the wrong side, and topstitch the fold 3/16 inch from the edge.
  Then fold the five other short edges 1/4 inch to the wrong side, and topstitch the fold 3/16 inch from the edge, leaving the two remaining long sides unhemmed.
