About Me

Fort Benning, GA, United States
I'm an army wife, working mom of 2 kids, and a dancer for fun! My husband Tim works the at the combatives school here on fort benning. I work for MWR at Outdoor Recreation as their admin assistant...I absolutely LOVE my job I couldn't have found anything better! My daughter, Kennedie, was born in January of 04 and our son, Cale, was born June of 09 - that's right they are 5 and a half years apart! Kennedie is VERY involved in dancing. Cale is well on his way to become a fighter - daddy is already working on his punching and kicking techniques! This blog started out as a recipe sharing venture but now it's going to turn into a more "granola" way to live. Cheap recipes more homemade recipes and repurposing things. I'm a crafter at heart so i'm going to throw some of that in their too!

reusable snack bags

This is a really easy sewing project.  Even a beginner to make this happen!
 Here are two edges that you can have.  I have a serger and I use that bad boy every chance I can.  I had a defective one (which i returned and got a better one!) so I was able to test out two different ways to make this!  You can serge that velcro right to the top of the bag without needing to hem it or you can zig zag stitch it and zig zag up the sides!  Basically just fold it in half and sew up the sides!  This fabric I used it called PUL (polyurethane) I bought it at joanns in the Baby Boutique section - it is marketed to be used as reusable diaper covers.  If you can find this you can also use oil cloth.

 Just showing you it's waterproof!
 Here is my 2 year old eating some craisins out of one.
