Vinyl at Joann's for sandwich bags?
 
Is the clear stuff in the home goods section the right stuff? Is it food grade? I found some that's half off right now and I'm dying to make some sandwich bags.

If it is PVC, I would not use it near my food because of fear of off-gassing. I have made sandwich bags using the inserts from cereal packets!

No, I dont know that there is anything for sale that is considered food safe. I have been watching for something and have not found anything

Wazoodle lists its PUL as food safe (but I would ask for documentation). Also, Prym, the maker of Babyville PUL (which you can buy at JoAnn's) apparently will give you a product information sheet saying the BV PUL is food safe. Mostly, I think that means its phthalate, BPA and PVC free.

From my limited research another factor FDA considers are crevices in the "container" that would be hard to clean (ie a bag would have corners/crevices). But I would only worry about this, personally, if selling them.

For personal use, I'd have no problem using the 2 products I listed above. I'm not heating my food up in my bag and I'm mostly using them so I don't have to throw away a gazillion zip locs.

I've made a couple with rip stop nylon inner with a cotton outer.

Actually, just found this:
"Wow, there is lots of excitement in Babyville! Many of you have already found the products and are interested in the product certifications. That's great!

Thanks for posting that link! I've been wanting to make some snack/sandwich bags but couldn't figure out what to make them out of!
