I'm gonna search through my bags for some intersting looking ones and make some today! I bought some re-usable bags in the grocery store - strong and serviceable, but boring. Now mine will look really interesting. Thanks!

Wait, is this whole bag held together by shoestrings?  I buy a lot of canned stuffage.  It would break within one trip.  It's a super cute bag for sures, but not very practical.

very nice! I hope no one asked this already (to busy right now to read everyones comments Sad )but how durable is it? it looks strong, but i wasn't sure..... You did a great job though!
I used it this weekend as a small overnight tote. I held everything and never felt like it was going to give out! It is really tough material. It seems very similar in texture and thickness as a tarp.

So I give it Five stars for toughness!

It is not held together with shoe laces. I sewed the fused plastic into a bag. It is very durable and has held up amazingly!At first, I used the shoe laces mostly as decoration, then I thought they would make great handles.

It has held a load of groceries. I days worth of clothes and toiletries! so it is Super strong!

Thanks for the comments everyone!!

Looks great. I'm really getting inspired by all the fused plastic projects I've been seeing on here lately. I definitely want to give it a try ... but I think maybe I'll wait until after the weather cools down a bit so I can shut off the a/c and open all the windows so I don't asphyxiate myself on melted plastic fumes.
