Great for holding sandwiches! Earth Friendly!
I wanted to make a sandwich bag, and wanted to put one of my favorite fast-food logos on it, but I couldn't decide between Carls Jr. or McDonald's. So, I ended up using both. :)
>inspired by ketchup and mustard!<

Hope you enjoy this tutorial! :3

Oh btw, You should probably make the bag a little more wider.

    Step 2

    Start by cutting a rectangle out of your red felt. > I forgot the measurements since I did this a year ago < ..
    It should almost look like a square, but still rectangular.
    Make sure you write down whatever measurements you made.
    Using the measurements, do the same on the Yellow Felt.
    Using the base measurement, cut out a small rectangle (base measurementx4")
    Cut out 2 rectangles(that increase in width going down) from the Red and Yellow felt.

    Ok, so grab the ends of the red piece and (in your head) divide the width into 3 sections. About and inch from the edge of the piece, cut along the first imaginary section, then the third, leaving the middle section alone.
    Bend the piece the way I am.
