Handmade Lunch from Felt and Fabric

Made this trio of items for a swap on Swap-Bot.

The snack bag is made from 100% cotton fabric and closes with a strip of velcro. Although the bag is not air-tight (like a plastic bag would be), it is safe to have next to food. Opted not to use rip-stop nylon or PUL which I've seen used in other snack bags, but aren't safe to use next to food.

The decoupaged clothespins are covered with decorative paper. They can be used to hold chip bags closed.

The wool felt pita sandwich is hand-embroidered using cotton embroidery floss. All the pieces are made from wool felt.

I enjoy making felt food and the clothespins, and have different items available through my shop, Harvest Moon by Hand.
