Everyone loves a great zippy pouch, right? How about a zippy pouch that doubles as an insulated snack bag to keep snacks, juice and other munchies nice and cool? How about a zippy pouch that is personalized so you’ll always know whose is whose? The Star Insulated Snack Bag by Jennie of Clover + Violet covers all the bases and we’re a little smitten. Jennie adapted a simple zip pouch to include a layer of our Insul-Film™ to keep her kids’ snacks fresh and crisp throughout the day. We love the little star with the embroidered initial in the center. Not much for embroidery? You could try appliqué instead, or perhaps a fussy cut of a favorite pattern. There are endless options!
The pattern for this new Summer essential is up on our site today and you can grab everything you need right here.
Star Insulated Snack Bag

Jennie is one half of the mother-daughter team of Clover & Violet. She works with her mom, sewing, quilting, and designing patterns (mostly for patchwork bags, but also for embroidery). It is a dream-come-true kind of job, doing what she loves, working with her dearest friend, and having her fabric habit paid for! Jennie is also mom to two busy toddlers who love to help her sew, play with her fabric scraps, and roll around on unfinished quilts (they’ve also both already developed a healthy love of fabric too!). Even if it is a little hectic at times, it is the perfect daily adventure!
