Colorful fabrics and iron-on vinyl make these wrappers machine-washable, leak-resistant, and too cute to resist. Fold your sandwiches inside and secure with Velcro. Then open them up and use as a placemat!
Step 1: Materials
- Pre-washed fabric - enough to cut an 18" square
- Fusible vinyl - I used Heat N' Bond Iron-on Vinyl
- 3" strip of Velcro
- Needle & thread to secure Velcro
Peel the backing from the vinyl and place it on the wrong side of the fabric.
Then turn the fabric over and iron from the right side (otherwise you'll end up with vinyl melted all over your iron!)
Step 3: Cut and finish edges
Fold the edges to the inside and carefully use the tip of your iron to fuse the vinyl to itself.
Make sure to keep the edge of the iron on the folded edge of the fabric and not on the vinyl itself!
Repeat on all four corners.
Step 4: Add Velcro
I used sticky Velcro, which is why there isn't a picture of me sewing it.
Learn from my mistake. Sticky Velcro is not your friend in this scenario. Sew it.
Step 5: Tuck in your sandwich
Fold over the two edges without the Velcro to overlap in the middle.
Then fold back one of the Velcro edges.
Fold back the other Velcro edge and tuck under to stick to the opposite Velcro.
Seal it up and you're good to go!
Step 6: The end.
You will now be the envy of your peers. Expect many requests from your friends for their own reusable sandwich wraps!
