Fused Plastic Bags Tote Bag
recycling plastic grocery bags

This is a Tote Bag I made out of recycled grocery store plastic bags. I got the idea from Etsy Labs. You get the grocery store plastic bags and fuse them together and then cut them out and sew them up. The two pictures are the same bag just the opposite sides.

I love the idea of these bags, but the plastic is very stiff after fusing and I think it would have been easier if I would have made the bag bigger. I had a heck of a time sewing around the top and the bottom. Anyway, I know it's not the prettiest bag, but I think it is pretty cool anyway!

They do have some prettier ones and easy to follow instuctions on the Etsy Lab Page listed below.
