Cloth Baggies

About a year ago, when the babe started eating real food, we needed to have some snacks on hand for her when we were out and about. I didn’t want to go through so many plastic baggies, so I purchased these little velcro cloth baggies. They would be really simple to make, but it was at a time when I wasn’t able to do much crafting, so I bought these. They are made by Evelyn Fields, and they are adorable. I mostly keep cheerio type snacks in them and even if some get crushed, there is no spillage from the bag. This is just one little way that we reduce our waste and look pretty at the same time. What is your favourite way to be green?

    Those cloth baggies are lovely. I’ve got two cotton draw-string bags that I use to keep loaves of homemade bread in – much less wasteful than wrapping them in foil. Even better the bags have ‘Bread’ and ‘Rolls’ embroidered on them and were only 50p each from a car boot sale some years ago.

    Thanks so much for telling your friends about our Evelyn Fields Snack Bags. Your blog is really cute & I love the wood cutting board in your last post. I have been wanting to get one for a while now. Thanks Melissa

  4. Sorry I’m a post behind, but that rolling pin is superduper!
    I bet it’s quite mesmerising when you’re rolling it back and forth!

    What a great idea! I have just ordered the pdf pattern and I think these may end up as my next small change ( I’ll let everyone know where the idea came from!) Thanks Emily

    I can just see the babe’s chubby little hands reaching in and pulling out cheerios to snack on. It’s a precious sight!

    What a sweet little bag! I am just at the stage with number 3 of needing to take finger foods out and about, what a cute way to do it.
