My Mom and I made some a few years ago. I love them! Use we them daily - my 3 kids and my husband all use them for their lunches and snacks. My daughter named them "snack-e bags."

Snack-e bags - that's so cute Kristina! Thanks for your comment!

Love this idea! Zip lock bags are so wasteful and its also a great activity to do with your kids!It is also a great lesson for them to learn early on. I also recommend making a lunch back out of the same material, especially as the kids get a bit older and don't want that clunky lunch box anymore and start carrying their lunches in plastic grocery bags or paper bags. They can make a fabric one out of material they think is cool. Another tip is to put the kids name on these bags. I know when I was a kid I was constantly leaving my lunch bag at school!

What a nice idea and it's eco-friendly too. I always feel so bad for throwing away the baggies when I'm done. Thank you!

Micaela


Hi Zoe - Once you start using snack sacks, you'll probably never go back to using plastic baggies for snacks again! At least that's what happened to me!

I made a few of these when my daughter started kinder this year. I love them! Some of the other moms have asked me where I got them and when I told them I made them, they offered to pay me to do some for them! Great way to cut back on waste!

Elisabeth@SimpleGreenishLiving

Have really been wanting to make some of these. Nice work, looks great!

Micaela


Stephanie - how great that people want to hire you to make snack sacks! Have fun with it!

Hi Elizabeth - Glad you like the snack sacks! Are you going to try to make some yourself?

I am not very crafty and well, I mostly definitely do not sew. With that said, I love this idea. My mom is the sewer, so I will have to pass this on to her to make for me. Lugging around my glass jars makes my purse very heavy!!! Cute designs! :)

Micaela


Hi Good Girl Stephanie - yeah, sewing is not for everyone. My Mom taught me when I was young, so I am hooked! Drop the hint to your Mom and maybe she'll make you a few!

I love reusable bags. How do you wash the oil cloth ones?

Micaela


Emily - I wash the oil cloth bags by hand.
