    here are 2 of the small snap bags I made....( I have made about 30 or more) I used the tutorial from http://tatteredgarden.blogspot.com/2...-tutorial.html
    Most of them I lined also with plastic zip lock bags so they will be good for snacks or cosmetics etc

    You can get the metal tape measures at Dollar stores and for the larger totes you need the ones that are 1" wide and I found those at Just a Buck

    Thanks for the tut. There is a little girl that sits next to me in church and she alway's has Cheerios in a Ziploc that goes all over. She can't quite get the hang of the zip part. She's still pretty young. I think I will make her one of these.

    I think that is a lovely idea..I made one for my 2 1/2 yr old grand for that purpose ..for all snacks..and my older grands use theirs for things like hair clips and scrunchies etc

    I love the shape of these and the purpose. We are doing them at our retreat on Labor Day. I did a bunch for gifts last Christmas.

    Those are too cute! I'm not much of a bag maker, but I think even I could do some of those. Thanks for the pics & the link to the blog instructions.
    Now to find some metal tape measures... :D

    these are so neat! I'm going to look for some tape measures next time I'm at a dollar store! Thanks for posting. Do you cut your ziplock bags for the lining? Probably a silly question, but I'm having trouble visualizing!! Thanks for posting the tutorial info too!

    Wow... I'm amazed at how clever people are at re-purposing things. I must have tossed more than one tape measure with a broken spring. The ones in the house are used all the time, so I can't cannibalize them.

    I've made these also. The instructions I had were a little different but all comes out the same way. I use mine to put my rotary cutter, scissors, etc for when I got to my sewing classes.

    Thanks for the pics, I'm going to make these for dog training, to keep smelly treats in.Now all I have to do is find the metal closures somewhere on line. Any ideas where?
    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.

    Perfect!! My first one dh gave me..not broken..he thought he had a broken one but couldn't find it and figured he threw it out..so gave me a good one..I used it....THEN he found the broken one..that was ok I used that one too and found some $ stores have the 1" wide ones and some have the 3/4" ones

    Thank you for sharing! I'd given up looking on line for a pattern/tutorial, finally bought the pattern at a shop a few weeks ago. Oh well.

    Yours are very cute & I like the idea of lining w/ plastic bag.

    Just saw one a friend did when I shared the site with her on how to make these...she made it long for a pencil case but she used hers for scissors etc in her sewing tote...will make one and post a pic as soon as I can!
