Super Easy Reusable Snack Bag Tutorial

Snack Bag Tutorial

My snack bag tutorial shows you how to make a reusuable snack bag using one piece of fabric. 

Here's what you will need:
scrap fabric- 6.5" x 28 inches or 26" x 7" (depending on what size scrap you have)
sewing machine

Here is the piece that is 6.5" x 28"

This piece is 7" x 26"

Once you have your piece cut out, fold it in half with right sides facing.


Sew around the edges leaving a hole for turning.

Turn right side out.  Topstitch the side to close the opening.

Cut a piece of velcro 6 inches long.  Place one side of the velcro at the top of one side and the other piece on the other side.  Like the photo below.  Pin and sew in place.


This is what it will look like if you use a 7" x 26" piece.


Place the velcro pieces together.



Then topstitch the sides and bottom.

That's it.  You are done. 


I have been using the bags to send snacks to school for the kids.  You can just turn them inside out to brush off the crumbs or throw it in the wash.  Now I just need to make more in various sizes


If you decide to make a snack bag using my tutorial, make sure to add a photo to my flickr pool.

The snack bags are a cute idea, and great way to save on using so many baggies. My husband use to laugh at me because I would wash and reuse my baggies. Now guess who is washing out baggies too.

I've seen these little snack bags at stores but of course they look like they would be easy enough to make! Thanks for the tutorial! I enjoyed browsing your blog and look forward to more! Visiting from Tea Rose Home and your new follower!

This is wonderful. I'll be making these for all kinds of uses out of favourite old clothing. Thanks for sharing how you made them.

I bought a few of these at a craft fair last year and they've all be lost now. Thanks for the tutorial- I'm totally making these!

I love these and would love to try some using oil cloth!

Stacy said...

Very green idea! I have a feeling mine would never make it back home. You never know, though! Maybe if I made them out of really cute fabric they wouldn't throw them away. :/

great idea!

Hi, this is a brilliant idea and I would love to make some for my daughter for school. Do they open up easily enough as they are or could you attach little handles to each side at the top of the opening to help little hands open them up? Thanks

Hi - just a Q.: do crackers stay crispy in these even if you don't use laminated cotton? If you send celery or carrots do they do o.k. in these too? Thanks! :)
