These reusable snack bags are a huge hit in our house. I finally broke down (after two years) and bought some PUL fabric. I'm not really planning on making any cloth diapers with it (but perhaps I'll give it a try!) but I have a lot of other uses in mind. One idea is reusable snack bags. I've seen them cropping up at some of the trendy stores and websites so I had to make my own. I just cut fabric the size of a ziploc bag and sewed it up-- cute fabric on the outside and PUL on the inside. Velcro at the top. Mostly I just shake out the cheddar bunny crumbs but I did have to wash one and it was just fine. Someone did ask me if PUL is ok to be next to food. I hadn't thought about that. It's not like I'm throwing the whole thing in the microwave but it would be nice to know. I'm not too freaked out by chemicals so it's not a huge concern to me. How nice is it to not have to wash or throw out plastic ziploc bags? Priceless.
36 year old mother to 6 1/2 year old Talia, 3 yr old Alex, and 7 month old Shayna. I retired from Pediatric Intensive Care Nursing in 2007. My family moved from Philadelphia to Madison, Wisconsin in July 07. I love to craft, quilt, cook and read. Spending time with my kids is ok too! In the last few years I've gotten into green living by trying to eat local, compost, cloth diaper and garden. As a family we are enjoying exploring Madison and transitioning from being East Coast people to Midwesterners. (Updated 09/10)
