    waterproof liner

    I want to make reusable snack sacks for my grandkids. What should I get that would make the inside lineer waterproof, so they could be wiped out after use?

    There is a waterproof fabric called PUL that is used in making cloth diaper covers, etc. It is a polyester knit that is laminated. It remains soft, not shiny. Fabric.com and other online children's fabric/sewing shops sell it. It comes in bright colors and sometimes prints, so you can use it by itself to make lunch sacks.

    JoAnn's has clear vinyl in various weights by the yard.

    I bought some vinyl covered fabric and it is very soft and sews like regular cotton fabric.
    Got fabric?

    Is there a reason you don't want to make them washable? That's what I'd prefer. Just throw the fabric sack into the washer.

    If you don't plan on throwing them in the wash, clear vinyl would be your most cost-efficient choice. There are some soft vinyls that would work well for you, it comes pretty wide and cost is about $2.00 a yard.

    At Hancocks you can get drapery liner that has a vinyl like backing that I use for things like this. Wait for a coupon and then buy it.

    I saw a pattern once where a regular ziplock bag was sewn inside the fabric bag...
    People who start projects and never finish them are cooler
    than people who never start projects at all.

    thanks so much..I would like them washable as well as wipable. I figure if there is anything like a gummy snack put in them, the liner would be an advantage to just fabric...Off to find PUL today!!
