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.

I love the Old Bay bag! I'm from Maryland but live quite far from there now; your bag made me so happy! Where did you get the print for it?
This stuff is really cool!!! I wish you would tell everyone how to do it :(

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

I love your ideas! Gotta try the plastic fusing next (already knitted your christmas tree ;)

Thanks but...I don't think I have a knitted christmas tree project? I have a silver mirror-y christmas tree but there's no knitting in it.

I have added a tutorial on fusing plastic
eclipsed (author)  sr1sws5 years ago
I have a bunch of tips and tricks on my blog
http://mooneatsun.blogspot.com/2007/09/fused-plastic-bags-tutorial.html
but it's not in step by step form. I guess there might be room for yet another fusing tutorial! I need to take some more step by step pictures and then I will publish it here.
I love fusing plastic bags to make things! :D I usually go to the mall where the different stores have bright colors (as opposed to grocery). The look at me weird when I ask for a couple of bags, but usually give them to me anyway. I have a friend who loves Sprite, so for her birthday I got a bunch of sprite bottles and peeled the plastic off the label to make her a plastic fused Sprite bag.

That is wonderful. I never knew such items could be so beautiful.
