The Snack Bag
A few weeks ago, Amy Karol from Angry Chicken posted a sewing tutorial video on how to make simple snack bags. I have always wanted to sew up a few bags for Franco but never really made the time to thinking that I had to put on velcro. I know, seems very lazy of me but I have to prioritize here & the velcro was a deal breaker. Enter the Amy Karol tutorial. Simple, easy to make & best of all–no velcro. There was no more excuses, I HAD to make snack bags & now so do you! Watch her tutorial here or follow my written instructions below & whip up your kids a set of snack bags in 20 minutes flat.
Cut out desired amount of fabric snack bags that are 18″ X 7″. I made 6 out of the Beyond the Sea Cloud 9 organic fabric collection.
Hem the shorter ends. With the WRONG side facing up fold fabric in 1/4″. Press. Fold another 1/4″. Press. Repeat to other side.
Using a 1/4″ seam allowance sew the hem. Repeat to other side.
With the RIGHT SIDE up fold one shorter end in 1 1/2″. Press.
Fold opposite shorter end in so that it touches other end. Press.
With a 1/4″ seam allowance sew longer ends. Repeat to other side.
Turn right side out & marvel at how easy it is to make a reusable snack bag!
