Snack Pouches! For School Lunches!

It's my little dude's second year of preschool, but this year he's going to be staying longer and having lunch with the "big kids."  He's pretty excited about it.  We got a lunch box just for him; he put a lot of thought into it and had to look at every one they had.

So I decided to make him is own reusable pouches to pack his snacks.  The lining is a waterproof PUL fabric I found at a little sewing store (though maybe just water-resistant now that I've sewn through it a bunch).  I'm not exactly sure what it is, but it's similar to this one from

Of course, the only things I have now to put in for the pictures are cookies.  I have grand ideas about carrots and crackers, because preschoolers love that sort of thing!  Maybe if packed in a fun pouch.

I kind of just winged it on this one, but there's a bunch of great tutorials out there.  This is a great one from Mauby's that I've had pinned on one of my Pinterest boards for a while.

Linking up with Live a Colorful Life for Really Random Thursday!


  1. They have PUL at JoAnn's - if you put them in the dryer once on high heat it will seal the holes from sewing. In the future just let them air dry.

    1. How do you know so much? :)

      I usually just shake some soapy water in them, rinse and air dry. If I let them get upstairs into the laundry, I'll never see them again. We must have gremlins.

  2. These are great! I get tired of wasting baggies in my son's lunch! I reuse them a couple of times, but these would be so much less wasteful!
