Continuing on in our Back To School theme, these snack bags will go perfectly with the reusable lunch bag we posted a couple of weeks ago! These bags are great for sending a snack with your son or daughter (or yourself!)! They take the place of zip lock bags so it is a great/cute way to be green! I used the iron-on vinyl again for this project so these bags can be wiped or washed out if needed!
- 2 coordinating fabrics (one for the liner and one for the outside)
- iron-on vinyl
- coordinating thread
1.)fold your fabric in half and cut out a rectangle that is 7 X7.5 inches on the fold(the 7 inches should be on the fold). Cut out a rectangle for the liner and the outer fabric
2.) on the liner fabric, iron-on the vinyl using the packaged instructions to the RIGHT side of the fabric.
3.) fold your fabric so that the right sides are together and the wrong side is facing out. On the folded edge cut out a square from each corner. the square should be about .5 X .5 inches
4.) sew the two vertical sides together on the liner and the outer fabric. I use a 1/4 inch seam allowance
5.) Square off the corners by pulling the corners of the square apart diagonally so that the seam you just sewed is in the in middle of the edge.
6.) Sew the edge to finish squaring off the corner. Do this to all 4 corners (2 on the liner and 2 on the outer)
7.) Cut out a strip of Velcro that is the length of the side of the bag. Sew the Velcro 1/2 down from the top of the liner (on the vinyl side).
Sew the other half of Velcro onto the other half of the liner. So the liner should have Velcro on the vinyl side going all the way around it.
8. Place the liner into the outer fabric right sides together
9.) Sew around the top of the bag with 1/4 seam allowance. Leave a 2-3 inch opening to flip right side out
10.) Flip the liner and outer fabrice right side out and push the liner inside the bag. The vinyl is a little stiff so you might have work a bit to get it in. Top sew the opening closed.
There you have it! A cute reusable snack bag! I just flip mine inside out and rinse if off once we have used it and let it dry for the next time!
