Bored as I am somethimes, wanting to make something but not sure what, I was watching an episode of Grey´s Anatomy eating some chips and this thought came to my head: could I turn this chips bag into a coin purse mmmh… I trow the rest away, washed the envelope, and try to see if my sewing machine can sew on this plastic.

Sorprise! it does, but only with some fabric under it. I think this is a cool way to recycle chips bags. Now i just told my friends: if you eat chips save the envelope for me and I will make you something nice out of it, I got so obsesed about this that i also put a cardbox in the grocery store near my house to get people recycle their chips bags. We´ll see if it works.

Hi Jordyca,

Love the chip bag purse. If you get enough of them recycled you could make a couple shopping bags from them by sewing them all together. Great idea!

haha Aren't they awesome?  I've made several bags from chip bags.  They draw a lot of attention.  I didn't sew mine.  I used Duct Tape to line it and hold everything together.  They're very sturdy and with the duct tape, the bag isn't crinkly any more.

Thanks for the tip.. I will see if I can find colored duck tape, I think in Mexico we have only the silver type.. I don´t know I haven´t seen any colored type.

Thank you for your comments, eat chips and make bags ha ha ha  Wink

That's very cute.  If you add some clear vinyl to protect the chip bag, it'll last forever.
