Sew It

Image 1 Image

So, I’ve been on a bit of a “waste-less, reuse more” kick lately.  It all started when I got sick of buying and carrying cases of water from my car to my apartment (I’m not lazy y’all, it’s a pretty long hallway). I bought a CamelBak Eddy (which is my absolute favorite bottle) and have never looked back on buying water.  This sort of had a snowball effect and I started searching for more things in my daily routine that I could swap for a reusable option.  One of the next things that needed to go was the big drawer full of plastic zipper bags.  I mean how inefficient is it to use a zipper bag for one, maybe two uses and then toss it?  Ridiculous, if you ask me.  I decided to search the blogosphere for an alternative to the zipper bag, and was so elated when I found this tutorial.  I decided to put my sewing skills to use and try and make my own.  Y’all it was wayyy easier than I could have imagined! And I’ll be honest, I am a terrible seamstress.  I made a set of four and plan on making a few more.  I use these baggies daily.  I can throw in my snacks for class, pack them in my bag, and throw them in the wash when I get home. They’re not meant for wet items like fruit, but work great for dry snacks and sandwiches. This week I was so excited when my friends commented on how cute they were!
