    I saw these and wanted them... but couldn't afford them, so I made some for my daughter's snacks and it was pretty easy!
    Made with white muslin, some left over quilting fabric (100% cotton) and the top is velco to keep it sealed closed.

    How did you make that? Is that a drawstring or ziplock style top?
    I bought some off of a friend of mine who used pul fabric and put the vinyl type side on the inside so it could be just wiped clean.
    I think that is such a wonderful idea. You could make some of those and sell them on here. [​IMG]

    Sorry I didn't see where you said it was velcro at the top. [​IMG]

    Make one with vinyl in it and a serama on it, and Ill take it!! lol
    Great job! I love that idea! I hate that ziplock bags are not recyclable, tried washing and re-using, but too much of a pain!

    I may offer them up far sale sometime, or by order. I've made a couple more for my daughter so far so she could have farm animals and such.

    I'm planning on another batch of them as a gift for a friend of mine right now. She calls me a hippy... but she is slowly coming over to the Earth Friendly side. I'll have her hugging trees any day now! [​IMG]

    First one I would do is a silky though. [​IMG]

    These guys are 100% preshrunk cotton muslin, so they are machine washable and don't need the plastic lining. So into the wash and into the dryer then back into the kitchen drawer.

    I think that is the cutest most practical thing I've seen in along time!!! What a great green idea, kudos to you and I agree with the selling, you probably couldn't make them as fast as you could sell them, good luck, I love it!! [​IMG]

    You ought to try the sandwich wraps too. They aren't hard to make at all. [​IMG]
