I think I'm getting obsessed with reusing things. I saw many amazing projects fusing plastic bags around here that I wanted to give a try...

I used about 12 plastic bags and I planned to fuse and sew two rectangles to get a pencil case...but when I was fusing the bags I thought I could seal the edges and forget the seams  Wink  The edges are really hard probably because there are about 16 layers of plastic!!!!

I used some velcro to close the pencil case and the buttons are sewed just for embellish...

The surface is really irregular...but I think it is original and usable in real world...

What do you think?

That's such a cool idea! It looks really good too -- a little wrinkled, so it's different. Kudos!

Very cool!  When I saw it on the main page, I thought it was felted wool.  I like the buttons! Smiley

Thank you!!!! I covered the big button with fabric. The small one is nacre, found it in a flea market.
