Canning jars are popular right now, and rightly so! They are inexpensive, sold by the dozen, dishwasher-safe, seal well, and the glass is BPA-free and microwaveable. They can be used to store soup, stew, chili, casseroles, salads, drinks, desserts - just about anything. So I thought, why not create a bag designed to bring a lunch in these wonderful containers?

So here it is: the Jars to Go bag! It is designed to hold two canning jars in sleeves, to help hold them upright. It is underlined with fleece to cushion the glass. It will hold wide-mouth or standard jars, pint-size. And if you want to bring a sandwich or something other than a jar, the sleeves fold out of the way, as shown in the fourth photo. (You can even squeeze in a sandwich beside the two jars, if you like!) And of course, it will hold commercially canned soups or entrees and bottled drinks instead.

This one is made of a natural color canvas fabric with blue and red stripes. This fabric appears to be unbleached cotton, as it has darker flecks. The bag is lined with unbleached cotton muslin. The bag measures 9" tall, and 12" wide when laid flat. It includes a small cloth napkin useful for wrapping your silverware, 13" square, of the unbleached muslin.

A word about unbleached cotton muslin used for the lining and napkin: I love it. It is soft and naturally colored. It has darker flecks, lighter and darker patches, and the occasional slub. Since one person's "character" is another person's "flaw" I just thought I would mention it. If the nature of this fabric would get on your nerves, just convo me and we will discuss fabric options that would be more pleasing to you!

The food, jars and silverware shown in the photos are not included in the listing - only the bag and napkin are for sale. (Yes, I know you're not a moron, I just have to say these things.)

Frequently asked questions about atinyforest

I know my zero-waste customers want to know! The #1 function of packaging is to get your item to you in good condition. Currently I am using kraft bubble mailers with some recycled content. (Researching a better option for when I use up my current stock - if you have wisdom on this, please contact me!) I also use tape on what I perceive as weak spots. I use heat-printed labels - I know they're evil, but they save ink (packaging) and trips to the post office (gas). I limit the "extra papers" to one business card and one tiny thank-you. I will leave those out if you ask.
