How to Make a Reusable Sandwich Wrapcomments (91) March 26th, 2009
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
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.
2. Hem the edges.
