The Potato Chip Bag

The new purse I made recently is from a pattern called "the potato chip bag".  No, it's not filled with potato chips (although that does sound good), it's because you can't make just one.

And they were right....these are so quick and fun to make I found I had created several more in no time. 

Of course I had to modify them to meet my needs by adding a space to hold my pens and Velcro to secure the flap.

These are just big enough to hold my camera, cell phone, wallet, couple of pens and odd bits of this and that.

Here's some of the ones from my left over batik fabrics:

Then I couldn't resist using the fat quarter of music note fabric for this one:

I can see all kinds of wild things a person could do with these, but I need to make myself stop now to finish up some other projects during this nice cool snap.

Long Live the Queen of Purses


  1. You are so talented, Cheryl. I love these bags. And I'm just trying to remember how to put button holes in thick chenille for a robe I'm finishing. Off to Youtube. Thanks for sharing your creations.

  2. That is so cool! That must be fun to do, and then use! Those are really pretty, too! You are so talented.

  3. Whats the going price on the blue one with the tree limbs?

  4. What beautiful materials. Your have an awesome talent, and you could have a little business on the side here. I found the vinyl shipping envelopes (all different sizes) on Amazon. They are so much lighter for mailing than the cardboard boxes. I'm off now to catch up with the next post. You have a super day, hugs, Edna B.
