Re-usable snack bag

You’ve seen them at all kinds of retail stores from the big boxes to the boutiques. Why pay a small fortune for one $3 - $8 (depending on the store), when you can make your own for a fraction of the price with your fabric scraps?

My first set of bags were made with cotton fabric and zip loc bag lining. Then I made some with canvas lining…they’re great for pretzels and crackers. Then I found some waterproof nylon at the discount fabric store. What you need:

5 x 10 fabric
5 x 10 lining fabric (zip loc bag, fabric, or nylon)
4 1/2 in Velcro

Serge your short ends of fabric and liner together with right sides facing each other

Turn inside out and sew Velcro on each end with zig zag stitch. I just eye ball center the Velcro.

Fold in half with fabric facing each other on serge up the sides.

Turn inside out and you’re done!
