Mama's going green.....(at least I'm trying!)

I am soooooo proud of myself!  I have been making tiny adjustments in our household lately by trying to waste less, buy less and enjoy what I have more.  As a part of that process I started noticing how many plastic baggies we use in Little Mamas lunchbox (she started year round school this July: KINDERGARTEN!!!).  I have seen re-use able lunch baggies at the store but since I am trying to buy nothing but groceries these days I had to use my brain (and the web).  I would do a step by step tutorial but honestly it was trial and error with no measuring or pattern.  Basically I sewed two pieces of fabric and two Hefty freezer bags together so it made a "laminated" material that will be easy to wipe clean.  Then I used an old school sandwich bag as inspiration for the design.  I am tickled by the result and can't wait to see how they hold up!
