Tutorial: Lunch Sacks and Reusable Sandwich Bags

Sandwich Bag



Every Monday, live at 10pm EST… I host my tutorial show Sew Krazy on MomTv. Join us this week as I teach the audience how to make lunch sacks and reusable sandwich bags!

How To Cut Your Fabric:

back / flap – about 6 1/2 by 14 inches
front – 6 1/2 by 8 1/2 inches
sides – 5 1/2 by 8 1/2 inches
bottom – 6 1/2 by 5 1/2 inches

Additional Supplies:

Velcro
Canvas Ribbon (for the handle)
Stabilizer (cut the same as the fabric above)
Nylon Fabric (cut the same as the fabric above)

General Instructions:

Once the fabric, stabilizer, and nylon are cut to size… layer the three pieces like a sandwich and pin. You should now have a front, back, bottom and two side pieces completed and pinned to hold it together.

Begin by sewing the front and back pieces to the bottom piece WRONG sides together (meaning the RIGHT sides are facing out). This method leaves a raw edge but is a cute and quick way to finish your project. Next… sew the side pieces to the bottom. Finally… join the side pieces to the front and the back piece. Your velcro can be added to a comfortable closing spot and the handle added to the top of the flap!

Tune in for a visual aid!
