A few weeks back I came across this wonderful tutorial on how to fuse plastic bags. It looked like so much fun that I just had to have a go. I suppose it appealed to the rebel kid in me as it involved melting plastic with an iron, and NO adult supervision no less. (No, wait... I think  I am supposed to have classed myself as adult for quite a number of years now. Bummer.)

Anyways, here are the fruits of my rebellious plastic-melting labour:



And here is the final item:

It's got a small pocket on the inside (for my phone maybe) and is just big enough to fit an A4 notepad. The handles are standard nylon webbing. Next time I fuse bags I am gonna be more careful to make sure they are properly fused as the top layer here is separating from the other layers in some places. I think it was the type of bag I used.
