thank you Jessimocha, Grin
i guess i will leave it in.
and yeah-  incorporating the plastic that i dislike so much into the solution feels pretty satisfying. 
and sadly, even after making these plaper bags out of my stash of plastic bags, i know that everyone around me is overrun with plastic bags and i would probably never run out of "material" if i made them full time forever.
i think i should do that for my mom and friends, when i get my 5-6 bags done.  take their stashes and turn them into reusable bags.
hmmmmmm

Thanks for the tips on fusing the plastic!  I love your bag, I have been keeping a stash of reusable bags in the car and the one you made is so awesome, I think I'm going to try and do one myself. 

You made it very clear in your post that you didn't intend for your entry to be a debate about where to or not to shop.  I shouldn't have named any names when I responded, aside from just saying I agree with you. Wink

Best,
Christine

Though I do hate that people dislike where I work I do understand why, I probably should have just cut my prior comment down to say what I actually wanted to and left the freak out at home.

I just wanted to let everyone know that if you have the problem with having too many plastic grocery bags that Wal-Mart does sale reuseable shopping bags that are made from recycled plastic bags, they are very roomie and strong. So if your home is over run by plastic bags, bring 'em back to the store and we'll be happy to take them back.

Though for people who wish to craft with bags more power to you, I've seen many people on here use bags for all sorts of things from pain brushes to knitting.

creamycharb I didn't mean to make you feel bad or feel as if you did wrong by expressing your opinion, and I'm sorry that I did.

I love your bag's style. It's quite nice and I personally understand your frustration with the big store never having what you need. Though for me My big craft store is the one that does that! lol.
I love your resolution and it's very well executed! Great job!

This is really great! I'm currently in the process of making some market bags myself (crochet, 'cause it's what I know!) but I would love to make something like this. If you ever posted a tutorial, I would be glad to use it!!

I specifically buy clothes that I don't need to iron, and thus I don't have one.  However, seeing this type of thing, as well as having an odd obsession with Perler beads, makes me think I should buy an iron.

Any thoughts on what kind of iron I should get?  What should I look for?

get an inexpensive one if you are just starting out. that way if it gets ruined there are no tears.

I like ironing as the therapudic part of my crafting. I have a 50 dollar iron (it was a wedding gift, but still.....)

It's a very useful art

Oh No!  i dont iron my clothes either. 
my iron is specifically for crafts.
you could grab one second hand,i bet
and you wouldnt need a functioning steam feature for the plastic fusing.  but there may be other crafts out there that require steam-  i dont know.

I'm gonna post a tutorial as soon as i can have some crafting time. 
(i just started a PT job, so i have to figure out when i will get to do MY stuff.  ugggh!)
