Why these are better than the alternatives:
- Put food in while hot - it won't get soggy or melt the bag
- No worries about BPA's and the like leaking into your food
- Sanitary - machine washable in HOT water, unlike plastic-lined alternatives
- Cute and stylish
- Easy to make
- No 'Velcro' means they last much longer, however you wash them.
Denim - You can usually make at least 8 bags from one pair of old jeans. (Note - stretch denim is more difficult to sew on a machine.)
Strong thread - a contrasting color is nice.
