I like it. classic design, and my favorite color.

Re: How to Make an Infinity Scarf

she turned one end inside out and slid it up over the twist so that she could stitch the ends to each other right side to right side and still maintain the twist.

Re: Feed Bags: The Eco-friendly, Reusable Bulk Food or Snack Bags

I think I'd like to use a tulle bag to bring home produce. Lightweight so I'm not paying for the weight of the bag. alternatively, I'd like to get ahold of some of the thin strong fabric they use to line handbags. Wonder where we could get that from? LOL Kitty

Re: How to Make a Reusable Sandwich Wrap

I'm not a fan of plastic, if I were doing this rather than buy plastic coated fabric I'd consider oil cloth. Not sure if they actually make oil cloth these days or if it is plastic embedded, but oil cloth was cloth boiled in oil til the oil became bonded with the fabric. Silk and cotton were two fabrics which were treated this way.

However, if you have to use plastic, why not just stitch a recycled Cereal box liner into your project. OR, use silk. it's washable, fairly cheap, and boy does it prevent air from moving through it. should keep a sandwich from drying out til lunch time. LOL

Well I gotta say, I love the idea as far as it goes, but I think it needs a bit of thought to make it fit YOUR lifestyle and values. FWIW, kitty

Re: How to Make an Eco-Friendly Snack Bag

Glorious hats, this bag is meant for cherrios or other mostly dry snack foods. we keep them in the cupboards all the time without worrying about whether we have left them overnight. We might take a snack cup and use it the same way. I agree I'm not a fan of velcro, but what about a snap open purse closure?

Ripstop nylon fabrics go through the wash all the time without melting. even in the dryer. we use them for windbreaker jackets, all season coats, camping bags, and any number of other uses.

I think I might try this using one of those tough cereal bags in place of the nylon. printed side out, it would be the same thing as keeping the cereal in the manufacturer provided packaging. LOL Kitty
