I made this wallet out of a Nestle chocolate chip bag for my stepfather. I'm still in shock over it. I mean, every time I see it, I'm like "Whoa, I actually made that?!" I made it about a month ago, just never got around to taking pics of it. I didn't even think it was going to work, but I tried it and yeah...it's so cool! Really I can't believe, so there's a lot of pics. Enjoy!  Wink  Cheesy  Grin  Shocked

Very cute!  Did you use vinyl or packing tape to cover it, or did you just use it "as is?"  I like it a lot! 
Never mind-- I finally read the title of your post.  Fused!  Duh!   Smiley  Smiley

That's one 'sweet' wallet.  Wink It's amazing how just about anything can be reused and improved. All one needs is imagination. The wallet is waterproof too, I reckon, cause of the chocolate bag. That always comes handy on those rainy days.  Grin

  It's chocotastic, tigrisgalaxy! (fantastic)

Really cute, I tried to fuse some recycled plastic bags recently, and it didn't work so great. What setting did u use?

I used the setting just in between cotton and rayon(I think that's the one before cotton)

A friend of mine makes these and I was going to try one but my sewing machine is spazzing. Yours almost looks no sew- is that the case? If so, how did you make the inside pocket?

Oh no, I sewed it. I've been wanting to try them no-sew, but haven't gotten around to it. I don't know how well they would hold up that way, so I haven't done it yet.
