If you are like me, you have lots of little plastic baggies like this
in your purse, car, diaper bag, etc.
I decided that I waste way too many plastic baggies. I get a new one at least once a day. I always have to have snacks for my little guy whenever we go anywhere. So, to solve this problem, I decided to create reusable snack bags. These do not require great sewing skills. You just need to be able to sew a fairly straight line. I am not a seamstress by any means, but I can sew a somewhat straight line.
First you need to cut to squares of fabric to the desire size of your bag. I had extra cotton flannel fabric from some rag quilts I made, so I just used those. They were 6"x6" in size. Any cotton fabric should work well.Next, fold the fabric down on one side about 3/4" and sew the fold down using a zigzag.You now need to pin the right sides of the fabric (side with pattern) together and sew the three sides of the square together. Don't sew side with the folded down fabric.Next, cut iron-on Velcro to fit the size of the opening of the bag and ironed it on according to package directions.Flip the bag right-side out and the bag is complete! The Velcro is really strong and won't let anything escape!To show my appreciate to my followers, I have chosen a follower from this site and Facebook to using random.org to receive two of these snack bags.
