useful things

inspired by this post and a former coworker's idea, i decided to make good use of my scraps and make reusable sandwich* bags.
i machined through them, cutting 7"x7" and 7"x4" squares from my scraps and using ripstop nylon for the linings and velcro for the closure. they are machine washable, but, word to the wise, turn them inside out before you wash them.
i used my favorite fabric (above) and now have a tank top, pillow, sandwich bag, and cat toy from this fabric. i'm unstoppable. i need to take a picture of the ensemble, yes?
* these bags can hold an array of items other than sandwiches.
