Reusable Snack Bags

I have been wanting to make these little guys for a long time now! I think I even posted that I was going to make them back in October or November and never got around to it...until today!

I don't know if you are like me or not, but I use ziploc snack bags all the time! Mike and I both usually pack our lunches so they get used there. Whenever we go somewhere and Zoe (our dog) tags along, I put some treats or her food for the day in a plastic ziploc bag. The uses for those things are endless and I tend to use them a whole lot! That sure isn't very GREEN of me! Or economical since once they are used I have to throw them away and eventually the box is empty and I have to go buy more!

So, when I saw these reusable snack bags I decided to give them a try! They were pretty easy to make, but don't look too closely...these were my first attempt so they aren't perfect! :) For someone who is a beginner they didn't take me that long to make either! I am excited to try them out...although I don't know if Mike will carry these particular ones in his lunch since they are pretty girly looking ;)

Also, these little bags are 100% machine washable and you aren't required to use them for food! As I was looking at them I came up with about 30 different things I could use them for including travel makeup bags, storing jewlery, etc! Use your imagination!


  1. I like!!! Where did you get the idea? And how long did they take to make? Can you add a button or some kind of clasp to keep them shut? Well done!!!

  2. I actually got the idea from one of Mom's friends. They have velcro inside to keep them closed! It took me about 40 minutes to make the first one (because I was reading directions along the way...and had some issues with the sewing machine) but the second one only took about 15 minutes to put together! They are pretty easy!
