Reusable snack bags are my newest and best selling product. I love these, they are eco friendly and save you lots of money. 💵
I’ve made these a couple different ways, with different types of fabric. Today I am going to show you how I make bags with a cotton outside and waterproof fabric inside. I can make two bags out of a fat quarter. For the inside I use ProCare Fabric, which I buy from a wonderful Etsy shop Laminates. (She delivers quickly and has a great selection of fabrics) The ProCare fabric is food safe and makes the bags waterproof on the inside.
- Cotton Fabric
- ProCare Fabric
- Measuring tape
- Sewing Machine
I began by cutting each fabric into two 8 inch squares.
After cutting, match the wrong side of the cotton fabric to the rough side of the ProCare Fabric and fold over the top. You will place the Velcro here and use a clip to hold in place.
*You cannot use pins*
Now we can start sewing. Sew on the edge of the Velcro. When you are doing the top side go across the length of the fabric so the edge is completed.
Match the cotton fabric right sides together and clip to began sewing the bag edges.
When sewing with this fabric you will want to start out slow, it bunches very easily. Try to hold as taut as possible while sewing. Sew the three edges and we have completed the bag. 👏
What are your eco friendly projects? Would you use different fabrics? Or maybe a different closure? Let me know what you think. I hope you have a creative day ☀️
