I’ve been wanting to make these reusable snack bags forever. It makes no sense to buy those 100 calorie packs (expensive and the packaging is wasteful!) when we could just do it ourselves. I followed the pattern on…crap. Lost the link. There are tons of tutorials out there but I really liked this one. If I find it again, I”ll post the exact website.
edit: I found it! The instructions from Tacy.org were super super easy and I think it’s a perfect sized snack pouch. Not too big, not too small. Since the jury is still out on using PUL for food and because I didn’t have any nylon lying around, I went with just cloth on the inside and out. They’re just going to be holding crackers, puffs, nuts and other dry snacky things. If they get really dirty, I’ll just throw them in the wash. Maybe once Jackson graduates onto peanut butter and jelly sandwiches, I’ll consider making something a little more water resistant.
edit to my edit: Found more instructions on We Wilsons. These are what I actually used for the bag in the picture.
I’ll be making tons more of these in different sizes now that JackJack is into those yummy melt-in-your-mouth puffs! Not that I eat his puffs or anything. ;D
Comments & Reviews
LOL at our conversation, in retrospect, about Jack eating the puffs (did you do what I did when I saw Seferino eating them? “Oh, I guess Sammy can eat those now, huh?”). 😀
And YUM do I love Annie’s Bunnies!!!!
wait til you try the yogurt melts… mmmmm baby snacks
I have a little neighbor, so I’ve had the yogurt melts. Yum.
I wonder-if you used something like oilcloth, would the bag hold up for stuff like chips that are more greasy? Clearly not thinking about Jack here, not yet anyway, but those of us with tortilla chip addictions need something a bit sturdier…
I just finished making one of these for Zoe! Thanks for all the inspiration! I love this blog/site 🙂
