Simple DIY Reusable Snack Bag

Mar 16, 2021 03:12:18

Being eco-friendly is a topic of today. In this project we`re going to make cute reusable snack bags which are perfect for sandwiches and crackers. They are easy to do and will take you not so much time, but the result is going to be gorgeous.

Let`s get started!

Things you need (for one  6 ½" x 6 ½" snack bag):

  • 2 pieces of laminated cotton (or another material you choose**) that measure at least 7 ½ x 16 ½"
  • a roll of 1" wide velcro
  • sewing machine & thread
  • paper clips

Step 1.

Cut out two rectangles of laminated cotton that measure 7 ½ " wide by 16 ½" long. I chose to cut my lining and outer fabric out of the same kind of fabric (laminated cotton), but you could make them each a different type of fabric if you choose.

Step 2.

Place them right sides together and sew around three sides (using a ½" seam allowance), leaving one short end open. You can choose to keep the fabrics in place with paper clips as you sew (I just wing it!).

Step 3.

Turn the rectangle right-side-out, and then fold the short edges in about ½" and topstitch to close the remaining short end.

Step 4.

Finger press around the perimeter of the rectangle (you can't use an iron on laminated cotton). Cut a piece of velcro that's about 6" long, and sew the "hook" side to the top edge of your rectangle as shown (use the side without the topstitching) and the "loop" side to the opposite end of the rectangle (but place it on the back of the rectangle and about 2" from the edge as shown).

Step 5.

Fold the bottom edge up as shown, so that the bottom velcro is facing outward and its edge is about 2 ½" inches from the top edge as shown. Secure with paper clips if you wish, and then topstitch around three sides of the snack bag, securing the sides and finishing the flap.
