One of my goals for 2011, as far as The Southern Institute is concerned, is to share more tutorials with you. It may be something that I’ve made or a perhaps a sewing technique… the sky’s the limit! Let me preface this by saying that I am not very good at pulling things out of the air and making something fabulous, but every so often I get an idea and I try it. This was one of those weeks!
We use Charlie’s Soap Laundry Detergent around these parts. I started using it when we were cloth diapering and love it so much that we have continued to use it for all of our laundry! If you use or have seen Charlie Soap, then you know that it comes in a plastic bag within an outer cloth drawstring bag. I’m a big fan of reusing what you already have. I’ve started to save those cloth bags, thinking that I could surely think of something to do with them. Earlier this week it hit me… why not make reusable snack bags? I went to work and came up with this tutorial for you. Obviously if you don’t use Charlie’s Soap (which I highly recommend) then you can use any kind of cloth bag, or you can use fabric scraps and just pick up with Step 2.
