Fritos zipper purse (recycled wrappers)

I couldn't wait to try out the teflon presser foot on an actual piece of sewn work.

My first project with the teflon foot was this Fritos zipper purse using recycled Fritos chips wrapper and 12-gauge vinyl.

I cut the chips bag into 2 halves and used the Fritos logo part (top) on one side of the purse and the picture part (bottom) on the other side of the purse.
My favorite Fritos flavor!!!!!

If you want to know the nutritional value of the fritos chips...please look inside the purse...haha :P

The exterior and interior of the purse have all been lined with vinyl. This could work well as a wet bag to hold diapers and wet swimsuits if it had been bigger. Will try to collect those super-size chip wrappers (just an excuse to eat more chips really!) to make into larger size wet bags.
This fritos purse is just the right size to hold my cellphone, tissue paper and wet wipes! And one more wrapper saved from the landfill.


  1. Great recycling, very clever.

  2. I'm glad I could give you some tips for sewing vinyl! These are fabulous!
