Simple craft project

Not being a political blog I won’t go into the whole UK election thing but as I was staying up late to watch the first results and analysis I decided to make the sandwich bag that The Vegetarian Society had kindly sent me to test for them.

The message with this project is “Eat to beat climate change” and is promoting a vegetarian diet alongside using a washable reusable wrapper for your sandwich.  This project came with simple instructions and a VegSoc patch to sew on.  As it’s nearly Christmas and my house is currently lacking in Christmas sparkle I chose a lovely festive red from my stash of fabric.

The instructions make a finished bag 17cm x 16 cm.

1. Starting with a piece of fabric measuring 19cm wide by 40cm long, fold the short side over by half a cm and then again by 1cm and stitch, repeat for the other short side
(alternatively use pinking shears to trim the fabric by 1.5cm on each short edge)

2. With the fabric right side up, fold the top 5cm down and the bottom 16cm up, and stitch the long sides

3. Turn your bag inside out and sew on the patch or any other embellishments

This was such an easy project I’m sure to make more!
