I recently had the opportunity to participate in heartsy.me. I thought it would be fun and that I might sell some bags and get enough money to buy the gorgeous sewing machine I had been dreaming of. I had no idea how my feature would be received and nothing prepared me for what happened. I [...]
I have been making my snack bags with PUL fabric liners. I use a food safe PUL that is thought to only release BPA when heated and I cannot think of a time where you would warm up a snack in a microwave to serve out of a snack bag. When I created the baggies [...]
