Tyvek Lunch Bag

CRAFT: Back to School



Tyvek is a strong, tear and water resistant material used for FedEx mailers and housewrap. I took apart a brown paper lunch bag and sketched out the shape on a flattened Tyvek mailer, then used my sewing machine to attach the seams (glue would work, too). The resulting lunch bag won’t last forever, but maybe it will last until you get your next scrap piece of Tyvek.

    Cool idea. I was in a Staples the other day and noticed they were selling packs of blank tyvek envelopes. Wouldn’t it be cool if you could feed them through a printer? Has anyone ever tried it (lazer printer, inkjet, screen-printing, sharpie)? You could make some pretty cool semi-reusable lunch bags!
