These cute little baggies are perfect for school lunches. They are so easy and quick to make, you can make several and have one for each day of the week!

They are food safe, waterproof, and re-usable. What more could you ask for in a lunch baggie?

The kind of fabric used is called Eco-PUL by Diaper Sewing Supplies.

What is Eco-PUL, you ask? Here’s a short description and you can read more about it 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.

So to sum it up, it means that it’s solvent-free, environmentally friendly, releases no volatile organics, machine washable and food safe!

You can read about their claim of being food safe here. 

I know you’re just dying to make one so here’s the super easy tutorial. If you’re a beginner you can do this!

BUT, before you put your fabric to the sewing machine 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, 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.


 Next line up the edges, pin(with bobby pins or fabric clips for best results) and sew in place. I accidentally used pins the first time. lol

That’s it! You can whip these out in 30 minutes or less, they are sew easy!

    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!

    Is this size big enough for a sandwich or would it need to be enlarged some?
    Thanks so much!

        Thank you for the quick response! I am going to sew some of these up for hubby to take his lunch in. If you want them waterproof on the outside do you just use PUL on the outside as well as the inside?

          Yes! 🙂 I hope you enjoy them!! I measured the finished size and it’s 7-1/4 long and 6 inches in width.

    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!
