If you follow me on Facebook, you may know that I was recently looking for reusable snack bags. Isabelle will be bringing her lunch to school three days a week, Tim brings his lunch, and I bribe the kids when we are out places with snacks so we go through lots of bags. I wanted to go reusable but also wanted them to be convenient, easy for the kids to open (yet not so easy that they spill all over my bag), and a cinch to clean. Well, NoraJane Crafts came to my rescue! Nora provided me with just what I was looking for in some cool patterns that the kids love.
I was skeptical that the Velcro would stay gunk-free but we’ve been using the bags like crazy and the Velcro is as clean as the day we got them. I just wash them in the sink with the dishes but you can also throw them in the washing machine if that’s more your style. And to be honest, they clean so easily that I’ve been known to simply shake out the crumbs and put them away for another day’s use!
Also, if you have a certain design, fabric, style that you like she will gladly make you whatever kind of bag you want (assuming she can find the fabric). Talk about service!
Nora also let me know that in addition to using the bags for snacks, you could also use them for makeup, toys, puzzles, video games, party favors, camera bags, medication, and much more. I’d never even considered using the bags for stuff like that but I just might now. I’m kind of becoming obsessed with them. So when you see me on an episode of Hoarders with reusable bags all over my house, you can refer back to this post to see where the madness began.
So why not stop by NoraJane’s Facebook page and give her a like, place an order, or just tell her that Dollops says hi!
