I have some leftover fabric that I'd like to put to good use.  My original idea was to make snack bags with them, but I've learned that PUL is not food safe.  Any suggestions for what I could make with it?

How big is it? When I stopped making diapers, I used my left-over PUL for a nice raincoat for DD. I have also made breastpads and mamapads.

I've heard that PUL isn't good for breastpads since it's not a breathable fabric. All that moisture can leave you very sore in between feedings. I can't imagine leaking through more than a few layers of cotton, which is what I make mine out of.

Again, depends on the size, pail liners, wet bags for the beach/diapers/mama cloth. If you have scraps and are still sewing diapers, they make cute embellished/contrasting tabs on the front of diapers.
I never had a problem with PUL nursing pads.
I also used PUL and fold over elastic to make dining chair seat covers.

Here's some info on food safe PUL

Apparently if it was bought at wazoodle ( and I heard one of the coops but can't remember which) it is fine.
