Introduction: Fused Plastic Bags and Accessories

I started fusing plastic bags in April 2007. Since then I have made a lot of items such as purses, tote bags, shopping bags, cosmetic pouches, and pencil cases. I am drawn to bags with great colors and graphics, and I especially like bags from foreign countries. I always like to bring back bags when I travel and I have had some generous friends in other countries send me bags. I also enjoy making appliques from different colored plastic bags, creating my own designs. Here is a sampling of some of my items made from fused plastic bags.

    Fantastic creations! I have been trying to think of what to upholster cardboard furniture with, and your fused plastic creations have given me inspiration.
