My little guy loves, I mean LOVES, to look through my purse for snacks. Even though I say "there isn't anything in there" he knows. He knows my purse has loads of snack items from suckers to candies to more nutritious things like granola bars and raisins and sometimes (dare I say it) fruit! So, I needed a place within my purse to be the snack bag so I can just grab it, or he can grab it, and choose something. Especially when I am on the phone, at the doctors (talking to the doctor) or waiting to pick my daughter up from school-you know the times they can't seem to go one more second without a snack!!
So here is the bag.
Take an old hoodie sweatshirt. This one had a stain on it but I have attachment issues.
First, cut the hood off.
Third, turn the hood inside out and sew. I wanted my sides to match up so I slightly curved the square raw edge. If you look in the bottom right hand corner of the white hood picture below you will see that the seem needs to go to the right of where the draw strings come out. By sewing this way you won't interrupt the strings which is the whole beauty of this bag.
