If you have ever wanted to quit using snack bags for your kid's lunch boxes (or your own lunch box!), this tutorial is for you! No more tossing baggies in the trash, and lots more cuteness is an added bonus.

Once everything is cut out, you can make these quickly, so cut out a few and give it a try. These bags would be a cute gift when given in a set of coordinating fabrics. Very fun!

The finished bags measure 5-1/2" X 6-1/2", but you can make the bags bigger or smaller by changing the measurements of the fabrics you start with.

Your first step is to pick out your fabrics. This project is perfect for raiding the scrap pile or using fat quarters.

You need two pieces of fabric measuring 7" X 12", one for the outside of the bag and one for the inside. I used a regular piece of quilting-weight cotton for the outside of my bag, and a piece of osnaburg for the inside. Also, you need a 6" piece of velcro, plus thread for sewing.

You are all set!
