Anyone else feel like they might need to social distance from their refrigerator?! ;)
Well, if you can't stop snacking, you're actually just making materials for future craft projects. I took a Doritos bag and a Ruffles bag and turned them into this fabulous zippered bag:
...so it's perfect for art supplies, makeup...or even snacks! (PS: Do you recognize that fabric? It's a piece I printed during #PrintInktober!)
Some tips on making a bag like this:
- I washed and dried the chip bags before I used them.
- I cut the bags open and then enclosed them between two layers of clear iron-on vinyl. The vinyl gives them strength and stability for use over time, but you don't notice it at all when you look at the finished bag.
- You can treat your "chip bag fabric" like any other fabric when you're stitching it together. You have to use a pressing sheet when ironing it and it's stiff to turn, but otherwise it behaves like fabric!
- There are tons of FREE tutorials online for making a "flat bottomed zipper bag." Do a google search and find one that works for you!
- Get your family in on the process. For example, Steve has offered to eat some M&Ms in order to help me with my next project. What a guy! ;)
