Snacks are a big deal in our house. With two little kids, any time an adventure or errand keeps us out of the house for more than 90 minutes or so, I need to pack a snack. Containers can be too bulky, and I hate the waste that comes from single-serve packets or using plastic bags. Reusable snack bags are the answer!

Instead of purchasing single-use plastic baggies, make your own reusable snack bags. This easy snack bag tutorial requires some basic sewing skills, and then you’ve got zero-waste reusable baggies. These are a quick sew and great for on the go. They are perfect for sandwich and snacks like dry cereal, cookies, pretzels etc. They are a breeze to make! I made these three in about 30 minutes.


  • Outside cotton fabric—dig through your fabric stash! You just need enough to make two 6 1/2”x5″ rectangles
  • Waterproof food-safe fabric 
  • Velcro
  • Coordinating thread
  • Scissors
  • Ruler
  • Seam gauge
  • Rotary cutter and mat (optional, but makes this project even quicker!)
