Hen House Creations: Sandwich Bag Review

I recently had the opportunity to review the sandwich bag from Hen House Creations on Facebook .

First Impressions:

It's really thin! It arrived in a regular mailing envelope and the only reason I knew it was the sandwich bag was from the return address. First, I pulled it out and unfolded it. It has a blue flower pattern on the outside, and a plastic lining on the inside, so it's easily wipe-able after using it. It looks pretty cool, don't you think?

Straight out of the envelope (unfolded)

Opened up (notice the Velcro)
 I couldn't get over how good the stitching was! Just learning how to sew, my stitching is never straight. Oh, and look at the pattern! The flowery blue fabric is too cute.
Just had to show the stitching. Can't wait till I fully learn how to sew.
 So the next thing I had to do, after admiring the bag, was put it to use. So the next day, when Little I had to go to daycare, I made his peanut butter sandwich and put it in.
Little I's peanut butter sandwich for daycare.
Well, it held up! Little I had his peanut butter sandwiches, I had my cinnamon-raisin bagel, and it really did its job. It did get a bit of peanut butter on the inside, but just like I thought, I just turned it inside out and it wiped right off!

The only criticisms I have is with the touch tape: the loop side (soft part) did get a bit fuzzy, but that's normal when you have a toddler who wants to pull at it all the time. Also, maybe having the touch tape all along the closure would be better? Nothing fell out, but I'm thinking that if I did use it for smaller snacks, the little bits and pieces might make their way into the bottom of the backpack/lunch sack, or be lost in the abyss of my purse.

All in all, it's a great product, and after using it for a few days, I can officially say I want more.

**Update: 8/25/2012 I've had this sandwich bag for over a year and a half now, and I use it at least once a week when we go out to the park or somewhere that we'll need a snack/sandwich. It is still one of my favorite products because it is really what it promises: reusable, durable, and cute!

I received no financial compensation for this review. However, I did receive the sample free of charge. All opinions and thoughts shared are my own.
