I have seen some pretty cool stuff made out of the "fabric" from fusing together plastic grocery bags, so I decided to make one of my own. Hopefully you enjoy them as much as I have enjoyed creating them.

Step 1: Supplies

You will need:

1. Plastic bags- the kind you get from the grocery store. I also use the ones my food comes in from the potatoes, onions, anything really that comes in plastic bags. All you have to do is be careful with iron. Adjust the temp as needed for the bags you are using, Some are thinner than others.

2. Iron-

3. bib pattern- I just traced one I already had and used it as a base for mine.

4. 2 pressing sheets- you can find these at any craft/quilting shop. They are fabulous. Find the ones that you can use either side.

5. Glue gun and glue sticks

6. pair of scissors

The following items are great to have ,but not necessary:)

7. self healing cutting mat

8. rotary cutter

9. large ruler

<p>This is a great idea and what I like about it is that it is cost effective. I was wondering how long does this bib last?</p><p>http://ghcbibs.com</p>
<p>I didn't know that making a recycled plastic bag <a href="http://ghcbibs.com" rel="nofollow">bib</a> is very simple. The steps are very easy to follow. The pocket looks cute. This bib turned out so cool! Thank you for this one. Great job.</p>
@Dr.Pepper thank you<br><br>@NaturalCrafter I will have to give them a look thank you very much
I just noticed the name was the same but Im not affiliated with them other than liking their supplies.
If your looking for a great source for hot melt glue in a variety of strength and colors I found The Natural Craft Supply a great source. I got some nifty twine there also for macrame.<br>http://www.natural-craft-supply.com/shop/page/category/Category/076ff34ac10c92b7247b16a1c8a7885d.html
I love innovation! I found out from ironing contact plastic sheeting one time, that the paper backer sheet made so that the sticky side of the plastic doesn't stick to the paper protection sheet, makes a great cover sheet when ironing any plastics to keep the iron clean and you get a more seamless or finished look.
Great idea!
