I am doing the Dance of Joy!  It actually worked! I had a few handicaps while I tried it-like having to do it outside on the picnic table in a strong wind.  For a first attempt, I am thrilled.  I will do a few things differently next time-like making sure none of my hairs are in it-LOL.  I also used wax paper on both sides and a brown paper bag under that.  I had some trouble getting the wax paper off after all had cooled.  I really appreciate the sharing of this technique-Thanks!

i love this, in my house we have lots of plastic bags from the supermarket
here in Chile is absolutely normal to use plastic bags at the supermarket, and my parent shop a lot at "Lider" supermarket because of their work, they have like a candy-snacks little shop in my old school (i speak spanish, i don't know how do you call that kind of shop)
so definitely i'm trying this

I can't wait for warmer weather so I can try this!!!  I don't think I can do this outside in a foot of snow and 25 degrees!!!!  I keep getting more and more ideas to try from watching this thread though.............

Target totally stole your idea. They're selling totes made out of fused target bags. If you buy a newsweek magazine, you can take the cover off of it, turn it into an envelope, stuff it full of target bags and then send it in. A little later, you get a tote in the mail for free. You know they stalk this site!

I saw those target bags while I was there, and I was thinking, you know, if I was a little quicker on the uptake, I could have been selling them...lol


Oh, if posterboard seems too thick, you can get parchment paper, and iron the bags between layers of parchment paper...

I wonder if I can use this as an outer layer of diaper covers....or all-in-ones....hmmm

Great idea and tute!

Has anyone tried ironing over a bag that they crocheted yet I wonder?

This fabric would also be great as a shower curtain!   Hmm, if only I had a shower.   Cry
