I saw petchy's post about a fused plastic bag bag and was itching to make a themed one for a friend. Does anyone know how/if it's possible to fuse the bags if you put paper--or, why not, photos or photopaper-- between the layers? If it is possible to do it without mutilating the picture/s on the paper, does anyone know between how many layers I should put the photos to make the picture reasonably visible?

I contemplated this myself! I found the process a little stinky and chose not to persue it. Paper can tollerate a surprising amount of heat, its the chemicals on the surface that make up the picture that I would worry about- try it with a scrap or extra copy & let us know!

The other (safer) idea I was toying with is to merely sew the pictures (covered with plastic) onto the fused bag. If I don't end up melting the ironing board or fill my house with so many fumes that I have to move out, I'll post the results. Wink

lol- I briefly contemplated an extension cord and ironing outside, but I realized I'd get a headache either way. I'm just too sensitive to those chemicals to do that very often.
