Reusable handmade snack & sandwich bags

Portland, Oregon | 747 Sales

Announcement    Free shipping for the holidays!!! Each one of my reusable sandwich and snack bags is handmade by me out of premium, designer fabrics. The interior is made from easy to clean food-safe nylon - perfect for those messy sandwiches and snacks in kids' lunch boxes! For big messes, simply throw it in the washing machine! A full strip of soft velcro seals each bag - strong enough to keep your snacks and sandwiches contained, yet easy enough for children to open.

    Simply. Practical.

    I wish I could say I've been sewing my whole life, but that would be a lie. The truth is that when I was younger, my grandmother taught me to knit, crochet, and sew but I didn't stick with it and preferred to spend my time playing the creeks and corn fields next to our house.

    A "few" years later, I went to a fabric store with a friend and was amazed at how many beautiful fabrics there were and caught the fabric bug! About this same time my mother bought a new sewing machine and I got her hand-me-down which she showed me the basics of. I found sewing relaxing and rewarding and I found fabric shopping just plain addictive!

    I started off making bibs for baby shower gifts and I got really positive responses. People urged me to start selling them on this site called Etsy. I had never even heard of it! About the same time my daughter started kindergarten, and as someone who went to college for Environmental Science, I was appalled at how many disposable bags I was going through each week. I decided that, with some fun fabric and my trusty old sewing machine, I could put an end to that problem and I made a few reusable bags. Well, it didn't take long before her friends wanted them, and her friends' friends wanted them, and before long, I really did need to look into a more organized way of getting my product out there and available to the general public. And so, in fall of 2009, I finally took the plunge and started selling on Etsy and I've been enjoying it ever since!

    Thank you so much for stopping by my shop and for choosing handmade!
