Reusable Snack Bags {52 Quilt Block Pick Up}

Share the love!

Reusable Snack Bags are not that hard to make.  These can be customized to the size you need too!

Who doesn’t love a good snack?  How do you carry them around?  How about a wipeable and reusable snack bags! Stuff that baby full of little munchies and off you go.

These bags are perfect for any kind of snack.  Using a laminated fabric, or oilcloth, or a play mat {that is the fabric I used} is great for the inside of the bag because you can wipe it down.

The velcro all the way across the top keeps all the goodies trapped inside, so if it gets squished or crushed to bits, it doesn’t pile up in the corners of your bags and then find themselves inside your finger nail when you are digging around for change.

Reusable Snack Bag Tutorial~

tutorial for reusable snack bags. super easy- velcro top / patchworkposse #tutorial #bag

  1. Cut quilt block and lining to 8″ X 12″
  2. Cut velcro to 7″
  3. Sew velcro to the top and bottom of the lining fabric {keep it centered and 1/2″ from the top edge so it doesn’t get sewn into the seams}
  4. Fold the lining in half -matching velcro and sew the sides, leaving 2″ opening on one side for turning
  5. Fold the outside in half and sew the sides
  6. Turn the outside right sides out
  7. Stuff outside into the lining- pin the side seams, right sides will be facing each other
  8. Sew all the way around the top edge of the bag
  9. Turn right sides out using the turning hole
  10. Sew the hole closed and stuff lining into the bag

You can keep a sandwich inside, or sew up a few and keep them all in your lunch bag.

This is such an easy sewing pattern.  Great for beginners- and if you are like me and have a whole drawer of extra quilt blocks, you could totally load up the kids lunch bags with little reusable snack bags.

If you are using quilt blocks, go ahead and let the blocks determine the size of the bag.  I cut mine down, but really if you have a few 4 patch quilt blocks you could sew them together to make it bigger and then sew the bag out of it.  I totally didn’t worry about matching my inside fabric with the outside quilt block.  I used what I had on hand….and still love it.

It is kind of kooky- which I tend to lean towards with my sewing projects.
