Tape Measure

TIP: Make sure you crimp or tape the end of the tape after you cut the first strip or the rest will zip back into the casing. It happened to me and I had to take the whole thing apart and put it back together. As you can see from the image above I bent the end with some pliers to prevent it from scooting back inside. A piece of duct tape or masking tape a little wider than the tape would probably work too.

How to Make a Snap Bag

Decide how big you want your bag to be. I wanted mine to be at about 8 inches wide and 5 inches tall.

  • Take your desired width and add 1 inch. (for a 1/2 inch seam on each side) For me, 8 + 1 = 9 inches
  • Next, measure your height and double it. (5 x 2 = 10 inches) Then add 2 more inches for the channels that you will thread your tape into. (10 + 2 = 12 inches)
  • Cut a piece of the metal measuring tape the same as the desired width or slightly shorter.

Next, turn over an inch of fabric to the wrong side and sew across making a channel.

Slide the piece of the metal measuring tape into the channel with the convex or rounded side up.

Repeat on the other end. Then fold in half with right sides together and sew side seams just outside the measuring tape.

Flip right side out and enjoy.
