I still think they're pretty cool. I've only made six and I'm working with the dimensions to make more. I couldn't find the polyurethane coated nylon pack cloth in stores and didn't want to wait to order it online. So for my test runs I just bought a plastic tablecloth with the polyester backing for an extra secure hold. It's probably not the safest thing to eat from, but what plastic is really?
I played around with the sizes and came out with some funky stuff, but was able to use the really long one to temporarily store coupons, so it works. The others i haven't quite figured out what to do with. I have three that I made and used last week. One for a sandwich (the size was a total accident) and two for chips and other things; cheese cubes, broccoli, celery, carrot sticks!
I found these cute fabrics at Hobby Lobby 30% off. I just walked around until I found something that grabbed my attention being as that I've never shopped for fabric before. It was fun!
Here are progress shots of the latest snack bag ( I must say my straight sewing lins are getting so good!):
The fabric and liner cut out
Fold the ends over and sew together
Sew the sides together, inside out
And attach the velcro. I wanted white, but Ryan bought this stuff a while ago for a project and it's the stick on stuff so it's easy.
And here's the final product closed. It's on an 8 1/2 by 11 piece of printer paper to give you an idea of dimensions.
Here's a picture for depth. It will hold a lot of chips! Yum
