Turn Plastic into Purses and Shoulder Bags
My Niece collected Cheeto bags and gave them to me to make her a purse with. It took me a while to get one made for her but this is what I came up with. I lined the inside of the Chester Cheetos shoulder bag with a dark green, satin fabric, backed with a cotton knit panel. There are pockets on both sides, each with a zipper. D-rings connect two braided straps to the bag. The straps are made of large elastic, cotton, knit, bands braided together. The bag closes with an 18 inch plastic zipper. Satin, double ruffle ribbon line the edges of the bag, a finishing touch that adds contrast and punch. The Cheetos shoulder bag is roomy enough to make it the perfect overnight bag. I was able to stuff a pair of jeans, a t-shirt, make up bag, hair brush, flip flops, pajamas and some other random stuff inside and there was still plenty of room. Here’s what it looks like.
