I have seen tons of bags made of plastic and I thought I would give it a go. I was inspired by this post: http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=222676.0
I sort of keep a photo log of the steps but missed a few due to some experimentation.
I started by flattening my bags and stacking them on my cutting mat.
I then cut off the top (with the handles) and the bottoms.
This is where I lost track with the pictures.
I've read several posts on how to fuse the plastic and tried a couple methods. Two sheets of posterboard will give the smoothest fabric (had to use the highest setting on my iron) or parchment paper (on the rayon setting). I layered 6-8 sheets of the plastic for each panel of the plastic fabric.
I used a pattern for the quilt bags my mother and I make (need to post them eventually), but it turned out like a paper bag.
