insulated hotdog keeper or something else

This could possibly be the dumbest thing I've ever come
up with. Ya, it's a hot dog keeper AND it's insulated. Here's
how it came to be.

I fix my kids' lunch because I think it's crazy to
pay 6 bucks every day for only two of them to eat school lunch.
Basically we've had to get creative. Seriously, who wants a pb&j
every day of their life?! So I pack soups, salads, spaghetti, and cut
up hot dogs and stick ém in a thermos. It's worked great except hot
dogs don't fit in the thermos unless I chop them up. Then last night
I had an "ah ha" moment. "An insulated hot dog keeper!" Brilliant!!
Well, this is the point of the story that many of you may be thinking
"this chick is weird." I completely understand, but hang in there
cause while I was sewing these up last night, I realized there's
another use for this little pouch. Okay, so if you want to make one
of these hot dog keepers here's what you'll need:

4 cuts of fabric 4"x8" (2 for lining 2 for focus)
2 cuts insul-brite batting 4"x8"(you can find this at Joann's in
the interfacing aisle)

Just follow the directions here
And I couldn't resist putting a ruffly thing and buttons on these!
If you want to add a ruffle or buttons attach them to your focus
fabric before you do anything else.
