I wasn't sure about the Riley Blake zig zag for the inside and lining (its bold!), but I really struggled to find something that would even half-way go with the batik on the outside.
Hope that you like it, Benta!

Hard to believe that I'm already making it again!
FabWraps.co.uk but on Sunday 29th September will have her first real life stall at a Pamper Evening in Twickenham. If you live locally (and are 18+ and female) please do come along - it's free to come in and should be fun.
I'm sure to come back to tell you more about this, as I'm so proud of the ideas behind her business and how she's getting on with it. In the meantime I hope that she has a lot of fun running the stall on the 29th!

It was time for me to step up and reduce our single use plastic by making re-usable sandwich wrappers.
Then I turned the hemmed the edge. On one wrap I turned it over twice, but the corners were very bulky. One the second one I used a pinking cutter along the edges and then just turned it over once. Time will tell which is the most robust!
Then I added velcro - the soft strip across the outside fabric, and the hook strip down the inside of the opposite corner.
We've used them twice now and the girls seem happy with them.
Next we need to decide how to tackle wrapping a couple of biscuits or a peice of cake, which are also a frequent part of their lunches....!

Then I added a line of chain stitch in the squishy mud....
A paper circle with sunrays of stitching both on the circle and outside it.
At the bottom of the page beaded lines showing the puddles getting smaller and smaller.
I didn't extend the story. I didn't change the story. I did have to find my courage in order to cut and stitch into a perfectly reasonable book.
It was an adventure. I'm 'sorry not sorry' that it's finished!
On to other projects now!
