2018! It's a new year, and that means resolutions! Goals! It's an exciting time, and I can't wait to get started. One of my big goals for the year is to reduce my waste. I already cloth diaper my son, and that's what got me started thinking about how much STUFF I am constantly throwing away. A lot of those things come from the kitchen.
sandwich/snack bag pattern from Mamma Can Do It, I was super excited.
The tutorial is simple and comes with two sizes ready to go. I selected the larger size. The tutorial is really easy to follow and has great tips for beginning seamstresses. I have personally never sewn with velcro before this, and was a little nervous, but it was definitely much easier than expected! The bonus part of using velcro instead of snaps or a zipper is that my 2 year old son can easily open and close it all by himself--something he couldn't do with the regular Ziploc bag.
I am so excited to make sets of these bags, for my son and for myself. I love that my son can pick out his favorite fabrics, and that the bags come together so quickly that I can make as many as we need without worrying about time constraints. I love that I can set about on my New Year's Resolution, and that it's the easiest resolution I could have, thanks to these bags (and another pattern I'll tell you about later).
