For nuts on the go...

Have you made yourself some of these cute and easy-peasey reuseable snack bags? You really must. They're so fast to make and so very handy.



I'd been meaning to make myself some for a while (trying to wean off the zip-lock bags, and also carry around healthier snacks). When Sally sent me these 3 funky embroidered pears, I knew it was TIME.


I had just enough velcro to make three little bags, and this fun kitchen fabric (a gift from my friend Rival Anna) was perfect for the lining.



At some point I'll make myself a few more with a waterproof lining for other types of snacks. But these cotton ones are just the ticket for those times I want to whip my nuts out in public.

Thank yous go to We Wilsons for the idea, Virtually Sally for the pear love, and Nobby's Nuts for the fact that I've never quite moved on from suggestive nut jokes.

  1. finding myself here, snickering and repeating under my breath, 'nibble nobbys nuts before nobby nibbles yours' and wondering whether this was actually an advertising campaign or just something us 80's pre adolescents made up?

  13. I've been thinking along these lines (since I had to whip up a quick kinder-snack bag when the lunchbox was nowhere to be found).

    Oh - and I just realised that I wasn't officaially a Clutterpunk "follower" (I mean, apart from Bloglines). Now I am. Fancy that.
