So the reusable lunch bags are complete and ready to use for lunches of all kinds. I wimped out a bit and used the Cyndi get-r-done method of zig-zag stitch turned inside out. This happened because after nearly two hours of trying to make the Serger work, and failing, we went to plan B which quickly moved on and on until we found ourselves at about plan G. My friend Carrie persevered though and her bags are much prettier then mine but with only a couple of weeks before baby arrives I couldn’t have an unfinished project. Carrie’s bags have the unique added feature of binding tape along the edges. They make them look like a yummy commercial product! In fact I think she is about ready to take orders for them. Here are some pics of what we came up with.

Ridding my life of plastic zip lock bags
My friend Carrie and I were very ambitious this past weekend. We set out to make 30 reuseable lined fabric sandwich bags. We cut, pinned and got some of the velcro sewn on but zero completed after an entire day! We will pick up where we left off this coming weekend and sew until our knuckles bleed to get these fabulous pockets done. The kiddos will head off to school this fall fashionable and environmentally conscience. Here are some shots of our work.
