ETA: I have now fixed the link to the Snap Bag video. Sorry!
Have you seen these little snap bags? I admit, I am a bit slow to the party as they first started showing up several years ago. I decided to try making a few this week. I used The Gourmet Quilters Youtube tutorial which can be found here.
The genius part of these is that the closure is made with little bits of a regular metal tape measure. I bought this one at the dollar store. You can cut it with scissors. I put painters tape on the end so it wouldn’t retract into the tape measure after cutting the tab off.
I am thinking about making some more. Maybe I will make zipper bags next. I’m not sure but I quilted up another piece of my hand dyed fabric to use. I wanted a wandering feather so I quilted a large squiggle across the piece. Then I went back and added feathers. First to one side:
And then to the other side.
