Hey, parentals! That glorious event we've been eagerly awaiting all summer is almost upon us. That's right, I mean back-to-school time! (Holding for applause.) This week, Craft Apparent celebrates with a project that assures that this year, our kids' lunch is in the bag! So, ditch your disposable. A litter-free snack sack is simple to sew and easy on the Earth. Here's how you can make yours!
1/2 yd. Home Decor Weight Fabric (main)
1/2 yd. Lighter Weight Fabric (lining)
Sewing Machine OR Sewing Needle
Self-stick OR Sew-on, 1 1/2" Velcro Tabs
Pinking Shears (optional)
- Cut: two, 14" x 7" (sack front & back), one, 4 1/2" x 7" (bottom), and four, 2 1/2" x 14" (sides) pieces of main fabric. Repeat for lining and iron-on adhesive.
- Following the manufacturer's instructions, iron on adhesive to the wrong side of all main pieces of fabric. Iron lining pieces to adhesive on the main pieces.
- Measure 3 1/2" down from top edge, of the front of sack; center and sew or stick-on piece of Velcro. Sew or stick on reciprocal piece, 1/4" from the top edge of the back of sack.
TIP: Spray sack with fabric protector before use to guard from excessive food stains!
