I always cringe when I throw out an empty bag of chips, and not just because I'm mourning the emptiness: those shiny packages seem like they could be re-purposed somehow.
Well, here's how... Make a chip package patch. Instructables contributor Wocket fuses recycled material and original fashion to create this project.
Along with an empty chip bag, you'll need double-sided fusible interfacing, some backing fabric, a sewing machine with thread, scissors, and oil based paint.
The instructions and accompanying pictures will give you the general idea, but there is lots of room to exercise your own creativity and make a piece that is uniquely you.
