Sandwich Wraps

fb-big twitter-big email-big pin-big

It's time to ditch the clingfilm for an eco-friendly alternative, the sandwich wrapper. Coated with a thin layer of beeswax, you can rest assured that this project will keep your sarnies as fresh as the moment you made them. These designs have been created using Paddington Bear prints, but you can find more fantastic fabric designs to choose from at Create and Craft! You can find an assortment of fat quarters available at Create and Craft!

Essentials
Get started
  1. Fabric: fat quarters
  2. Beeswax
  3. Anti-snag hook and loop
Dimensions List
  1. 0.5cm seam allowance used throughout, unless otherwise stated.

1

    Cut 25cm squares of patterned and plain fabric. Grate beeswax onto the plain cotton, cover with greaseproof paper and iron to melt the wax evenly onto the fabric. Sew the two squares right sides together around all four edges with a 5mm seam allowance, leaving a 5cm gap in one side.

2

    Turn the squares right sides out and topstitch the edges, folding in the raw edges and closing the gap as you do so. Fold in the corners to the centre to make an envelope and finger press the creases.

3

    Cut four pieces of an anti-snag hook and loop. Pin and topstitch two pieces to the inside of the wrap on the adjacent corners. Sew the others onto the outside of the wrap on the remaining corners so that the sides can be folded in around the sandwich before the top and bottom are fastened.

    If you’ve finished your project in record speed, why not make another set for family and friends? You can find an assortment of fat quarters available at Create and Craft! Known for its award-winning customer service, you can expect a five-star experience when ordering fabrics and beyond!
