I have been using the last box of Ziploc baggies for months now. I purchased a large box from Costco a year ago. It is never ending. Really. So now that I can actually see the bottom of the box, I have been thinking about using reusable sandwich bags.
Today, my first thought was to see how I can buy them for at my local co-op. Being a somewhat cheap person, I could not pay $9 per bag. I just couldn’t. As I was looking at them I realized they were very simple to make. If only I knew how to sew…
My next thought was “I really need to learn how to sew.” I looked at this sewing machine because since I don’t know how to sew, never really sewed before, I didn’t want to spend too much. I then looked at Ebay for PUL fabric. I found tutorials that I liked here and here. Then I realized, before I make my own, maybe I should just buy a couple and see how I like them.
That thought led me to Etsy. If you have not visited Etsy you really should. You can find so many handmade items there. It is very nice to support you fellow Americans who make these items handmade.
I found Originally Yours on Etsy and was impressed. An 80+ year old woman uses second hand and scrap fabrics to make these reusable sandwich/snack bags! And they are priced just right! $3 each and a great shipping price. I bought 3 different baggies for $10.80 shipped. That is almost the same price of 3 at my local co-op.
Buying American handmade is not only good for our economy, helps those making money by their handiwork, and reduces my carbon footprint just a little.
