I have ordered custom reusable bag sets from Patty at 4Girls Designs (shop description: eco-friendly products, holiday items, cupcake stands, jewelry, custom orders, disney resort refillable mug carriers, sandwich bags, handbags, sewing patterns, luggage handle wraps, coasters, etc.) a few times before for birthday gifts. Once I started blogging I knew I wanted to spread the word about her products- they are great!! I remember one set we ordered was a Disney Princess set- she convo’d me to ask what the recipient’s favorite princess was so she could be sure to have that princess centered on the napkin and bags- and she did!! Just a really nice touch to an already great product, in my opinion.
For this review, Patty sent us a medium produce bag :
Which is a sandwich sized bag, a snack sized bag, and an adorable little napkin. I think you know me well enough by now to know if its matchy, it will be well loved by me. Ah, matchy………..
Anyway, I just love these. You can use them, reuse them, and continue the cycle over and over!! No plastic baggies necessary- just wash and dry and use again.
We have been using the produce bag like crazy. I need to order some more- I don’t know why I didn’t think to try one of these sooner. I put (usually lettuce) in this at the store, bring it home, wash it IN the bag, drain it a bit, and put it in the fridge. Crisp, clean lettuce. Its fantastic. I’d love to not ever use those pain-in-my-neck produce bags at the store again!! They are so easy to bring with you- they “squish” down really tiny and take up next to no room at all. You should totally try at least one!! I bet you will be hooked!!
The little set we got, Mr. B even brought to work (under protest but he found it easier to bring than the kids’ sets we have (trains, sparkly things…you get the idea). He would prefer a more ‘guy’ friendly print I am sure but he thinks the bags are really cool and very well made. (Busy and I just love that they are matchy. She gets to have lunch at camp starting Monday and she’s already insisting she get her lunch in her “matchy bags”). I see now on her site she has a Snoopy fabric. Its adorable. Look
. I’m right, aren’t I!?
Anyway, these are fantastic. Also, AFFORDABLE. Add in the matchy and cute factor, and you have a win!! Patty is super fast to respond to questions and also to ship (even with the ‘custom’ princess order she had it out quickly, especially for custom!!).
Before I get into the giveaway part of this post, I want to share this link
with you that Patty wrote about how Reusable Bags are becoming so popular and things you really should look out for when purchasing them. It is good information!!
Patty has generously offered one of my readers a sandwich wrap and snack bag set in this Bugs and Grass print. Its just fun and whimsical- how can you NOT want to bring a sandwich and a snack in this??
