These fold-top snack bags have been wonderful! On top of being eco-friendly and handy for snacks, they also make great bags to hold ice packs. Vin has learned to ride a bike, need I say more? I actually shared these about a year ago over on Mommy by Day, Crafter by Night and I thought it was high time I shared them here too!
Fold-Top Snack Bags
- 2 18” x 7” rectangles of fabric (contrasting works best)
- Matching thread
- Sewing machine
Start off by sewing both pieces together along one of the 7” sides. Turn and press seam.
Fold the sewn edge over the contrasting material approximately 2” as illustrated in the photo below. Pin in place.
Now the unsewn edges are going to be brought up, 2 to 3” above that 2” fold. The pictures explain this much better than I can.
First I pulled the back, purple, piece up, see above. (Sorry, I couldn’t get this picture to adjust.)
Then I pulled the top piece up and over the fold I pinned into place until it met the other unsewn 7” side. The right sides of each piece of material should be facing.
Once everything is lined up, pin in place and sew along the sides; do not sew along the 7” sides, these will be the top of the bag.
Flip the bag right side out and sew shut the top opening.
There you have it! A fold-top snack bag that’s good for you and good for the Earth!
