My Latest Obsession and a GIVEAWAY!



My newest crafting obsession is the ever-popular reusable snack bag!  They are the perfect project for me:  quick, useful and fun to make.  Lined with food-safe rip-stop nylon and velcro-topped, they are great for snacks, cosmetics, crayons and anything else gooey or crumbly!  I wash mine at the kitchen sink with a little dish soap and just flip them inside out to dry.  

I looked at several different versions in Lunch Bags!; but, none of them were quite what I was after.  It took me five experimental tries to come up with my final bag.  I'm really happy with the end result.  There are some other great projects in that book, though,  that I can't wait to give a try!

I had only intended to make a few for the kids.  Some friends really liked them and I ended up selling quite a few of them to friends here and abroad.  I'm making them in three useful sizes and TONS of different fabrics.  They are a great way for me to use up all the fun leftover fabric from old projects.  I'm even planning to get a table at an upcoming craft show in my hometown.  This week, the kids and I are headed to Ohio for some fun at the Fair and hardcore snack bag making!



To kick off my new business, I'm hosting my first GIVEAWAY.  The lucky winner, chosen at random, will receive one snack bag in the size and fabric of their choice.  (I'll email you a photo with everything available).  To enter, just leave a comment below.  Entries will be accepted until Saturday, September 1 at 11:59 PM.  Be sure an email address is included somewhere!  The winner will be chosen next week.  Good luck and happy snacking!!!

This Giveaway is Closed!  Thank You!
