Upcycled Chester Cheeto Shoulder Bag


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.

  1. A great idea that’s not only different but helps cut down on trash. You should contact Chester Cheetos and see what they think about it. I’m currently looking for content around how people interact with products and mascots. This article would be great to use on the chester cheetos profile page over at http://themascotvote.com/ Would you mind if I mentioned this bag creation in the chester cheeto profile?
