snack bag bundles

I finished 3 things! 3 whole projects. I'm very excited to show & tell. I've got my fingers crossed for more sunny days soon. Yesterday was sunny and like sixty degrees! I kid you not. Bikes were unearthed, fences were covered in sidewalk chalk and there was even a trip to the park!

First up, the finished snack bags. These were easy peasy and are pretty gratifying to make. As I mentioned before, I went for unlined to avoid the whole good plastic/bad plastic pitfall altogether. My least favorite part of this project – trying to rethread my screwed up serger. My favorite parts were picking out the fabrics I thought my friends would like and rolling them up in these cute little bundles. It can be good to have a friend who knows how to sew! I thought I'd extend this perk out to my blog friends. I know most of you sew but some of you probably don't. I thought I'd do a snack bag bundle giveaway for the non-sewers out there. So if that applies to you, leave a comment with your favorite color scheme and I'll have the random number generator pick a winner for a set of six cotton, unlined, velcro-closed snack bags.

Thanks for playing guys! Kate (fizz and co) your snack bags are underway.

    Fav color scheme is pink, brown and cream…I would love any of your bags in any color schemes you have…learning to sew is on my to do list for this year! These bags are an excellent idea!

  2. says:

    I would be so happy with any color combinations, but I have been loving sherbert ice cream colors lately! What a fantabulous idea!

  3. The Mom says:

    Those are awesome! It is times like this that I definitely wish I could sew. Light blue with brown is my current color obsession!
    Thanks for the giveaway!

  4. Bria says:

    Those are SO cool! I wish I had a sewing machine so I could make some too. Anyway, we like red, tourquoise, black, and grey (but the kiddo is a boy)

  5. jess says:

    These are so great! The center ones are my favorite!
    I was thinking about your snack bags this morning, when I couldn’t find ours during lunch-making time.

  6. lorien says:

    Right now, I can’t get enough of turquoise and orange together! These look like a great way to use up small pieces of lovely fabric.

  7. Clementine says:

    Learning how to sew is definitely high in my to do list. In the meantime, my favourite is the turquoise color.

  8. nancy heard says:

    ooooooooooooh what about the sewers that grind their teeth because they never have time to sew or do projects because they have a spirit-sucking corporate job?? πŸ˜€ the orange and olive green is sooooooooooo yummy!!

  9. Susan says:

    Non-sewer here! I love that middle bundle. I’ve been trying to be more ecofriendly. We got a compost bin last year, and now that Chicagoland is thawing out, I’m excited to see if we’ve got good dirt! Snack bags would be a good step for me and my kids.

  10. ana rita says:

    oh my, so cute!!! I finally feel lucky for not sewing. i like them all, but maybe the blue in the middle is my favorite πŸ™‚

  11. 8 Tea West says:

    Wow! So thoughtful to think of those of us who don’t sew!
    It’s hard to choose between the green & the blue, but I’ll go with the blue, please. (Assuming I, you know, am selected randomly.)

  12. Tanya M says:

    I WISH I sewed, but I really am intimidated. I need lessons. What a cute idea to sew some baggies for snacks!

  13. Carol says:

    Non-sewer here. No real color combo preference, but I do like cute prints. Thanks for thinking of us sewing-challenged people!

  14. Jamie D. says:

    They are all so cute. I would love to learn to sew something, maybe these would be a good place to start.

  15. Jana @ Weekend Vintage says:

    I sew-so I guess that makes me ineligible but I do want to say-so cute….especially the colourway on the right-greens. I hope you will post a tutorial. Do you think a larger version would work on the fridge. I seem to go though so many ziplock bags and I would love to cut down.
    Kind Regards,

  16. Debby says:

    These snack bags would be perfect for my grandchildren. We are all loving orange right now, but they are cute in any colour! What a great idea!

  17. anne says:

    What if I know how to sew but am pregnant and really too tired to do anything productive? Does that count? I love reds with anything!

  18. jengee says:

    TheLearning to sew is on my list of to-do’s for one day… Happy spring colors would be nice. I can’t wait for more sunny days!

  19. Edie Steinmann says:

    I’d love to consider myself a sewer one day, but with an almost 2-year-old and a newborn it’s not going to happen any time soon! I like the blues and oranges in the middle.

  20. Sally says:

    tonals…blues, browns, greens, reds. Umm, wait, I think I am starting to spout off my crayon box — oops!
    πŸ˜€ thank ya – these are sooo fun!

  21. Stephanie says:

    I am a non-sewer, but I definitely appreciate the talent of sewers. In fact, I’m jealous. Anyway, my favorite color scheme depends on the time of year. Right now I’m feeling springy…so pinks, yellows, greens.

  22. larissa says:

    blue, white, brown and orange! i am trying to start sewing and baggies are on my list… just haven’t learned it yet… these are cute!

  23. Wendy says:

    I was online looking for a job and my almost 3year old dumps her cheerios on the floor. After clean up! I visit your site. I dont think she would spill her snack if they were in bags compared to bowls.1st time comment love the blog!

  24. Kelly says:

    These are great and what a generous giveaway!
    Favorite color scheme at the moment (changes often) is cyan, orange, yellow and green.
    Thanks for the opportunity!

  25. Shelley says:

    What great fun! I love the set to the right.
    My favorite color combo right now is red, orange and yellow. They are such cheerful colors and they just make me smile.

  26. gina f. says:

    i love all colors. With spring coming i have been loving pink and green with some yellow, too

  27. Hope says:

    I’m at the end of the ROY G BIV spectrum and love my greens, blues, and violets. Of course, I pretty much love anything just COLORFUL. The more color, the better!

  28. Rachel says:

    Love all the colors!…teals, blues, greens…the bundle in the middle looks fabulous!!! Thanks so much for a fun giveaway! I purchased a sew machine, but have yet to attempt a sewing project! Hopefully sometime this year! =)

  29. Lisa J says:

    I have often cursed my serger – love/hate relationship with it in my machine sewing days. Now I do all my creating in my lap! Love all the bundles, but the center one speaks to me. Thanks so much for a give away prize!!

  30. Erin says:

    I feel that if I could only learn to thread the garage sale find sewing machine I could master these! Instead I’ll cross my fingers the green bundle is coming my way!

  31. Jessica says:

    Ok. I sew a little. Enough to know how much work it is to make all those bags!
    PS I have a little 4 month old boy, and I’ve decided his favorite color scheme is of the green/brown/orange variety.

  32. Hayley says:

    I barely sew and am in desperate need of snack bags for my daughter. Would love the 3rd set of greens & creams. Or the first set with creams & trucks? Ok all of them!

  33. Kelsey says:

    i love these! i reall love the blues and orange bundle! Could you put up how you made these, too?

  34. Violet says:

    I really wish I could sew but I lock up in fear of things not being perfect and then the project either fails entirely or it just barely gets started and never finished.
    I would say the colors of the season are turquoise, orange, red and purple!

  35. kelli says:

    A show and tell for the sewing impaired like myself would be cool!! These are such a great idea as I too am trying to avoid the whole toxic/plastic thing and they seem like something a beginner could even tackle !! Or just cross my fingers for the give-away [in any color of course] πŸ™‚

  36. Annie says:

    Um, I’m a sewer but a really lazy one so maybe I could put my name in the metaphorical hat? Love blues and browns and greens!

  37. sara says:

    Oh, these bags are so useful and darling! I love peacock and orange together – so cheerful! Thanks for the giveaway.

  38. Suzanne Schneider says:

    Love the yellows and greens…inspiration to delve into the world of sewing perhaps…thanks!

  39. penny says:

    i dream of a serger… though given how my sewing machine’s tension settings and i don’t get along (with servicing, it’s a user issue), i fear what that would be like. but i still dream. to choose colours? just not pinks, oranges, or yellows…

  40. *emy says:

    Honestly I would take ANY bundle you’d give me! But to answer your question I really dig blue and any sort of contrast color to it. Thanks for the giveaway!
    I hope I win!

  41. Kathleen says:

    oooh i’m a non-sewer ! turquoise, red & yellow … something for the bedroom of my daughter & son πŸ™‚

  42. Jenny says:

    Ok, i do sew. But, i’d still be thrilled to win one. Any color, and I promise I’d use it πŸ™‚ I have been reading your blog since before Phoebe was born. Thanks for all the inspiration!

  43. Trina says:

    Love them all, but I am a big fan of greens and mustards!
    Awesome! Thanks for the fun giveaway!

  44. Jessica says:

    Earthy colors of green and brown please… I love these alternatives to Ziploc and plastic containers. Thank you!!!

  45. Wendy R. says:

    so cute and such a good idea! love the greens and browns, love all of them actually.
    cute stuff as always!

  46. kristin says:

    115 comments! guess i hardly stand a chance, but just have to say i didn’t realize there were so many of us non-sewers reading here (i’m a hand stitcher only) anyway…i lean towards the blues&greens

  47. Briony says:

    Great bundles! I love the cream, green and chocolate brown please. Keep my snacks fresh and funky!

  48. Cristins says:

    Does being able to hem trousers and fix buttons count? That is the current extent of my sewing skills. I would like to learn, and I’m looking into finding a sewing machine and time.
    I quite like browns and oranges and blues as a colour combo. They are my trusty go-to colours!

  49. says:

    A sewing wannabe I love the oranges and greens also the blues and browns, polka dots are always a hit. Where do you get all your cool fabric? I go to Jo Ann’s but I guess I just don’t have an eve for it.

  50. Laura says:

    what a great idea! i love vintage colors, esp. aqua & red. and i think i spy some polka dots in there too – yummy!

  51. Ann says:

    I used to sew (when I was much much younger) and although I have a machine I never seem to find the time – if that doesn’t disqualify me I would love a chance to win the snack bags with the green and orange color scheme.

  52. Anastasia says:

    These are great. I have been wanting something like this for my son’s lunches.
    I think blue or green would be perfect for him. Thank you!

  53. rosalia says:

    Oh the Blues and oranges are so happy. The greens are quite wonderful too. Am chiming in for a tutorial :-). I am just learning how to sew.

  54. oona b says:

    I love the bundle on the right with all the bright patterns. I love the combo of blue and red together–I’m always hunting ways to combine the two (dishes, clothes, etc) Thanks for the chance.
