This has been the funnest day project! To make it even better, it uses up a bunch of scrap fabric that I've kept for far to long and wondered what to do with. In fact, the shiny stuff on the inside I remember using to make some kind of fabric flower when I was a little girl. Pretty Please tell me I'm not the only person that has some of their mothers fabric stash? Its hard to throw these types of things away!
I'm not sure what search I was doing that I stumbled upon the Idea of Re-usable snack bags, but I'm so glad that I did! Once again there are many tutorials and options out there, but the one that I thought would be the easiest and fastest I found here. If you are going to make your own stash of baggies, I recommend when you sew the second end seam (the first step) that you pull your outer material just a tad bit longer. Then when you flip it right side out to sew on the velcro, the outer material is naturally a little bit longer than the inner material. I think it creates a cleaner look.
I tested out the snack size bags with cereal in them for the little girls when we went to the grocery store. I think they are the perfect size for individual treats. The larger sandwich sized bag I think will be more functional for sharing treats. After dinner, I have a few other fabrics to whip into cute little snack bags. I even have one or two fabrics that aren't quite so girly, so Porter can not look silly, though he really could care less.
