Do you use reusable snack bags, or sandwich/zip-lock bags? I've been wanting to make some for months now...but you know how it is...

I just stumbled across this pattern, aren't they cute?! I like how neat of a job she does. No exposed seams or raw edges. They look like they'd be fairly easy, and if you have scraps of fabric laying around, these would also be cheep!

Or if you would prefer, this one uses a zipper, in place of the velcro.

And then there is this pattern that uses old vinyl table cloths, which make them a little more "water proof" (for things such a fresh washed/cut fruit..)

BUT in the mean time...or for those of you who don't sew: Etsy is a great place to find handmade snack bags, or you could always do what I did and buy some of the Munchkin from Amazon, Wal-mart, or Target.

I use these for everything! They are quite handy!

I haven't been able to find the Munchkin ones. Bring me some if you go to the store and see them before you come this way! I can't wait to see you!!!

I would love to make some of these! We would need big ones for us, but for my DH to take to work would be wonderful. Thanks for the tips, I love the old tablecloth idea, we have a few of them laying around. They no longer fit our table, which as grown to need a special size one.

I have no sewing ability but I've bought some with velcro from two Etsy shops. Both are great quality and work perfectly for us! I also use a set of those Munchkin ones (found in the baby section of Walmart) for loose snacks.

pretty cool idea - I might have to start making them for the girls - I hate sending them to preschool/daycare with plastic baggys...

I am using regular ziplock bags for everything. They are easily available in different sizes with more variety.
