Hey hey Craftsters, long time no see!
I should come more to comment on your beautiful stuff ^^

I've been making tons of those Pencil case but I'll only show you a few  Wink



People seem to love them <3
And I am so totally amazed by this bag, my first bottom-bag EVER!
I loved to do it, what a fun bag  Cheesy






Interested in making one? You need:
Sticky vinyl sheet, or Grip-tac.They usually come in roll ^^
Chip bags, or any fun packages.
The pattern of your project: You can do almost anything with them! (Well, not clothes, but it could be cool!  Cheesy)

You wash your chip bags like normal dishes, and be careful about not tearing them! Once your done, you will have to place them on the vinyl sheet like how you want them to be. Do not hesitate to cut them and take only the parts you want! It's up to you! This will be your fabric, so place and cut in the shape you need to do your project!
Then, carefully sew: Once a hole is made, you cannot make it disappear! So it's a bit more tricky if you need to pin them.

I hope this gave you some ideas, you can do this with any package of candy, chips, cookies... Have fun andgo crazy!  Wink

Thank you! And yeah, I totally don't know the exact name of this. x__x
It's really bugging me. xDD

And I'm new to sewing, this is really an easy project to do, here's the tutorial for the pencil case:

Instead of pinning (which causes the holes you mentioned), couldn't some scotch tape be used to keep everything from moving while it was being sewn?

btw - those pencil cases are adorable!  Great way to recycle AND make a fun project!

Yeah, exactly what I used when I really need to, thank you I forgot!  Cheesy
Glad you like it, I like how it gives a second life to beautiful packages too  Tongue

I assume it's like contact paper? I used to get the clear stuff to cover my paperback books from school.

You could also use paper clips or hair clips to hold the pieces together.
Great idea.
