    Forgot to look before posting, it uses an actual tape measure. Even better.Two plumbers and a builder as son/soninlaws, they break ém regularly.
    If you are talking about the snap bags, it just a part of a metal measuring tape that is cut to size. I made a purse using them. I cut four piece of the measuring tape puting two of them together per side and used duct tape to cover the ends which I had rounded. No points they will wear out the fabric. Double your fabric or use batting in that area on both sides for more protection. K

    Sue Fish, great idea using the plastic bags, they do sew up fast especially using the double sides pre-quilted fabric..........calla/Sue

    When you made these bags did you sandwich with batting and still used lining? Or did you just use 2 pieces of fabric for the inner and outer and how did you put the plastic bag inside it.

    Your bag looks wider at the top than what the picture shows from the link of the tattered garden. How much more did you make the adjustment? Love your bags.

    Don't mind me I always seem to ask questions before I get going on something or get the job done. I made one and looks fine.

    I would love to make these...my Daughter is just in First Grade and there are many years of lunches left. I have seen them with wide velcro and don't see any prbolem altering to do so also, but my main question is, is there anything more 'permanant' than a ziplock to line them with...something washable? Vinyl maybe? Ideas?
