Reusable Snack Bags

I inherited a few scraps of oil cloth from Rachel's dopp kit. I knew exactly what I wanted to make out of it: reusable snack bags. Since the snack goes inside the pouch (duh!) I wanted the inside to be easily wiped down, but also wanted the pattern on the outside. I cut two pieces per pouch, zigzagged them together with right sides out. Then, I stitched up the sides (and added velcro somewhere along the way). So far, they are working out nicely. I keep one in my son's backpack with a few wet wipes in it so he can clean his hands after snack time at school. I just might have to make more of these.

Awesome idea to use those for the wipes...I could use one for the gym. Isn't oil cloth fantastic?

Oil cloth is super! I really want to use it again.
