Last week we talked about Hook and Loop Tape closures. They are so simple but perfect when you need a fast closure. Today we wanted to give your some practice adding hook and loop tape. So for our free pattern we have this fun Reusable Snack Bag.
This would be a great project for adults, as well as children learning to sew.
Use your pinking shears to cut our your fabric piece. You can use a plain cotton fabric but laminated cotton or PUL will wash up better and repel grease.
Fold one short edge down 3" with right sides together.
Now fold the entire piece in half with right sides together and pin at the top where you folded down 3".
Draw a diagonal line with your fabric pen from the folded corner to raw edge of the piece. Cut along this line.
Open your fabric up again. You now have a little facing piece that is a triangle. Sew the facing to the main piece along the diagonal lines.
Turn your facing right side out and press. Topstitch along the diagonal lines.
Place one side of your hook and loop take in the middle of your facing piece. Stitch down.
Fold the bottom short edge of the snack bag up 1/4". Stitch down the edge.
Turn the piece right side up, in the middle and about 1.5" from the edge stitch down your other side of the hook and loop tape.
With right sides together, fold the bottom of your piece up to the bottom of the facing. Stitch down the side seams of the bag.
Turn the bag right side out and press. And you are done!!!!
And the best part, you can throw them in the laundry when they get dirty. So go find your some fabric and get sewing!!
