20 Minute #HANGRY Snack Bag Tutorial

snickers disclosureSuper fast and easy snack baggie tutorial.

Do you get hangry? You know when you are hungry and it just makes you a little bit crazy and you start to get a bit touchy, a little not yourself? I love those SNICKERS® commercials where the hungry people turn into crazy characters because I can TOTALLY relate. To stave off the hunger induced craze I made these super easy 20 minute snack bags. I throw in snacks for Teddy and me to share, a little something for him, and SNICKERS® Peanut Butter Squares or Almond just for me.  #WhenImHungry #CollectiveBias

Hangry bag tutorial. Easy sewing DIY Snack bags great for scraps.

I’m all about the emergency snacks and these easy snack bags I’m sharing today are perfect because I just pack them  in advance and hang them in the kitchen so when I’m running out the door I don’t have to stop and think about packing something for me and the baby just in case our errands take longer than I expect. I just grab a snack bag and we’re good to go.

Fast and easy simple bags. Great beginner sewing project and good for using up fabric scraps. 20 min tutorial.

20 Minute Snack Bag Tutorial

  • Bag Fabric 8 X 20 inches
  • Top Band Fabric 3 X 18 inches
  • Ribbon 30 inches
  • Safety Pin
  • Iron-on Vinyl words (optional)

Simple sacks. Easy beginner sewing bag tutorial.

  1. Fold your bag fabric right sides together so you have an 8 X 10 rectangle. Sew or serge down both long sides. Turn right side out.
  2. Iron the band fabric in half width wise so it’s even skinnier. Then fold it in half lengthwise and align it over the bag piece.
  3. With the raw edges (not the folded edge) touching the raw edge of the bag tuck the end of the band under and pin to the outside edge of the bag as shown above. You should have the band pinned all the way around with the two ends tucked under so it looks pretty.
  4. Next sew around the top catching both the bag and all the layers of the band fabric.
  5. Flip the band up and top stitch along the bag edge making sure to catch the band fabric on the inside to secure it down.
  6. If you want to add some vinyl letters like my #HANGRY do so now. I used my Cricut explore to cut out iron-on vinyl. If you’ve never done that it’s really fun and easy. I have a whole post that will walk you through how to use iron-on vinyl.
  7. Finally thread your ribbon through the casing using a safety pin to help push the ribbon through, tie a knot and you’re good to go!
