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!
