Like all dutiful mothers with young children in full-day school I purchased a new backpack and matching lunch box for each of my children before the school year started. What I didn't buy was a snack bag. I made one for the older one and am working on one for daughter #2 (since she doesn't return to preschool until Tuesday I figured - older daughter's bag would be my experiment).
It is based on a tutorial from the Lazy Seamstress Blog. I modified it a bit. I changed the button material out for elastic, added velcro, used Insul-Brite - as well as changed the measurements a bit (the tutorial was all in centimeters - threw me for a loop at first). It is completely machine washable - something I love in clothes and now snack bags.
My older daughter just tried out her bag and has announced she loves it. Now - to get her to love going to bed.
