What is it?!?!?

Sooo... What is it?! Is it a stack of Fat Quarters? Hhhmm... Sorta looks like it, but Nope!
Here is one, partially unfolded...
And all the way unfolded... Any ideas?!?!

They are *green* sandwich bags! They are two layers of fabric, and a layer of a heavy-duty food storage bag. Fold them up, add some velcro, and ta-da! A sandwich *bag* and place-mat, all in one. (The plastic is on the *inside* where the sandwich goes.)

These are one of the most clever ideas that I have seen in a long time. These were for a customer, for Christmas gifts for her grand-kids. But I am going to be making ALOT of these, as soon as I get more storage bags. I am excited about these, can you tell?!? :o)

I hope everyone is having a good week! Thank you for visiting!

People are getting more thrifty as time goes on. Love the fabrics those were made out of. Nice going Angela.

That is amazing Angela! What a great idea. We all need to be more green.... uh, not like Kermit green, but ecology green. Just wanted to make that clear before everyone goes out and colours their hair green and buys green makeup *LOL*

These are such a great, and green, idea!

Like the idea...reduce, reuse, and recycle! Where do you get the pattern?
