Quick and Easy Snack Baggie
This Quick and Easy Snack Baggie is waterproof, food safe, and reusable. It’s great for lunches, sandwiches, and snacks on the go.
Best of all, it’s super quick and super easy to sew! Perfect for beginners.
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.
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.
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.
Turn right side out. No need to sew up the opening, we will do that when we sew the edges, next.
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.
