Step 1:

I found this PUL (think waterproof) with cute little owls on it, what I like best was the little message each owl sends, especially “Whoooo loves you?”  The sandwich wrapper can be used to wrap anything in a lunch that will fit in its folds, not just a sandwich.  My Hubby likes to take left over homemade soups, with slices of homemade bread for lunch the next day.  I wrap the bread in the wrapper.  So here is how to make your own sandwich wrappers.

Step 2:

Supplies:
1/3 yard (12 inches or 30 cm) PUL fabric ($15.00 a yard so $5 for 1/3 yard, you can make 5 wrappers from this piece of fabric)
2 inches hook and loop fastener ($1 for 1 yard)
Fabric scissors
E-6000 glue
Ruler
Pen

Step 3:

Picture of
Cut a 12 inch (30 cm) square piece of pull fabric. With the wrong side of the fabric facing up, on each of the 4 sides, measure in 3 inches (7.5 cm) in from the corner (at the 3 inch and 9 inch mark).

Step 4:

Draw a line from each mark to the mark on the neighboring side.

to the center, of the right side of the material.  Make the bottom edge of the fastener about ½ inches (1.2cm) from the edge of the fabric.  Let dry for more than 1 hour (1 hour to dry, 24 hours to cure).

Step 10:

of the fastener to the wrong side of the fabric, so that the majority of the fastener sticks beyond the fabric.

Step 12:

Center it so that it will meet the loop fastener half when the wrapper is folded together. Let the glue dry and cure.
