These quick and easy snack baggies are food safe and washable, which makes them perfect for kids lunches or snacks on the go.

They are food safe because they are solvent-free, environmentally friendly, and release no volatile organics, but only if you use the special kind of fabric.

It has to be Eco-PUL fabric.  I got mine here.

What is Eco-PUL? Here’s a short description from their website, you can read more about it here. You can read about their claim of being food safe here.

PUL fabric by Eco-PUL™ starts with lightweight polyester interlock (knit) fabric. The polyester interlock is paired with TPU (thermoplastic polyurethane), a thin stretchy plastic film. These two components are bonded together into a single fabric using a combination of heat, pressure, and adhesive.

Before you begin sewing, you need to know how to sew Eco-PUL fabric.  It’s not like using regular fabric!

  • You don’t need to pre-wash Eco-PUL.
  • You don’t want to pin your Eco-PUL fabric, instead use bobby pins or fabric clips to hold it in place.
  • Use a ball point or knits needle
  • Use polyester thread to prevent wicking
  • Sew with the coated side against the feed dogs

Learn why these tips are important here. 

What you will need:

Eco-Pul fabric for the lining

Fabric for outside-either Eco-Pul or cotton

(Keep in mind Eco-Pul is waterproof)

Velcro-Iron on or sew on


**If you are using a regular cotton fabric along with your Eco-PUL, be sure to prewash it!**

But there’s no need to pre-wash Eco-PUL.

To start your quick and easy snack baggie, cut both pieces of fabric 16 x 8.

Quick-&-Easy-Baggie-02 (1)

 Cut one end in a half circle using a plate as your guide.


  Isn’t that cute?


 Pin (with bobby pins or fabric clips)  right sides together and sew all the way around leaving an opening to turn right side out.

Press with an iron.


 Cut along the half circle for turning.

Quick-&-Easy-Baggie-6 (1)

 Turn right side out. No need to sew up the opening, we will do that when we sew the edges, next.

Quick-&-Easy-Baggie-07 (2)

 Fold the end about 3/4 from the top. Line up where your Velcro will go and sew or iron on your Velcro.  See my post on how to sew on Velcro.


 Next, line up the edges, pin(with bobby pins or fabric clips for best results) and sew in place.

  10. Hi! This is great! I was just wondering, is Eco-Pul a brand, or is a different type of PUL? My local fabric shop sells PUL, but I’ve never heard of Eco-Pul. I tried googling the difference, but nothing comes up! Thanks!
  11. Can you use snaps for closures on these instead of the Velcro?
  12. Ashley Lunty
    Do you need to do two layers or will one of pul be enough?

  25. Is Eco-PUL foodsafe?
    • Yes, according to the manufacturer. Here is their link about it being food safe....http://www.diaperfabricdirect.com/uses-for-pul. Thank you for asking, I'm always glad to answer any questions from my readers!! :)
  26. Can these be machine washed and hung dry? I'm sick of washing Ziploc bags by hand in the sink and these are way cuter!
    • Yes, you can machine wash them and let them air dry rather than putting them in the dryer. Here's a link that tells you all the benefits of using Eco-Pul: http://www.diapersewingsupplies.com/what-is-pul-eco-pul-fabric. Enjoy!! :)
  27. Is this size big enough for a sandwich or would it need to be enlarged some? Thanks so much!

    Love this, much simpler than the ones I've been making, and I need to make a bunch more. I use bags like these in my gym bag for cosmetics and soap, shampoo etc. And of course in everyones lunch box. My oldest son wants a new set for his birthday in Batman fabric. Fab Tutorial thanks!
    • That's what I love about these, there are so many things to use them for and they are so easy to make! I hope you and your son enjoy the new bags!! :)
