These snack & sandwich bags have been in the works for a little while now, but I have been looking for a good, sustainable fabric to use and wanted them to be just the right size.
So this hemp, which comes in a light khaki, and a dark brown, might just be my favorite fabric I've sewn with ever. It is soft, sturdy, and unlike anything you can find in your local Joann's. Hemp fabric is sustainable because it grows quickly, therefore can be harvested and re-planted many times in a year. Also, it is naturally disease- and pest-resistant, and so requires no pesticides.
I chose to do a fold-over flap closure, which isn't being done a lot on Etsy, in an attempt to keep the velcro far away from where the crumbs tend to collect.
