20 Minute Re-useable Snack Bags

September 2013 037

I don’t know why I put off making these bad boys for so long.

Well, other than having no idea what laminated cotton was or how to find it.  I finally asked at JoAnns the other day…and they didn’t know what I was talking about.  So at least I wasn’t the only one.

Anyways, I had looked at a few tutorials and wasn’t really sold on any of them so I just kind of winged it and they turned out okay.  I think when I make more I’ll try to finish the lining separately so there won’t be a seam inside the bag, but so far it hasn’t mattered.  The girls love their little bags and as long as I don’t let the snacks run out they’re good and quiet in the store for me.  😉

Supply List:

  • 7″x14″ laminated cotton
    7″x14″ cotton (I think next I’ll do laminated on both sides, but I didn’t buy enough this time around.)
  • 6″ Velcro

Place fabric right sides together and sew all the way around, leaving an opening of three to four inches on one end.

Turn right side out, iron, and top stitch both ends.

Sew the Velcro to the laminated side.

With cotton fabric together, fold pouch in half and sew up the sides.  Turn right side out, iron, and voila!  A re-useable pouch that your kids will love.

See?  20 minutes or less.  Now that’s my kind of project.

    1. I’ve just been wiping out the insides, but I’m sure it will eventually need to be washed on the outside, too. When that happens I’ll either try the dishwasher (top shelf) or the washing machine. I have no idea what will happen. I know the laminated cotton can be put in the dishwasher (or so I’ve heard).

  1. These are so cute! I’ve never made anything with laminated cotton, but I’ve seen some stinking cute ones at Hobby Lobby that’s seriously tempted me. These might be good to try! Thanks so much for stopping by chapter37!
