DIY Kids Nifty Bags

kids bag

Have you seen these nifty bags.  My kids love them.  And with being the school year, they have come in super handy  They are reusable bags.  They are super easy to make as well.

Just measure the size of your bread.  For the width add  1 1/2 inches.  And then for the length double and add a min of 2 inches.  It will depend on how you want to make the closure.  I like to fold mine over as you can see in the picture.  for mine i add an extra 4 inches, so I can have the flip over style.  If you want to velcro it, you don’t need to add much.  Or you can combine the two and have it flip over and velcro.

If you grab some great cotton woven prints, and then a solid for the inside.  Some people will use a PUL so it’s waterproof or a vinyl.  well, they aren’t considered food safe.  So I don’t use them.

If you want to make it even more as a recycled project, you can use a chip back for the inside lining.  Then it is food safe, since food was already in it.

Now that you have the basics, you can make in a variety of sizes.  I make them as snack bags in several sizes.  And different shapes.  Watch for a full tutorial to come at A Little Bit of Everything
