For the reusable shopping bag challenge I decided to make a fused plastic bag. It was mainly just the white meijer bags, but with detailing froma black garbage bag. I got the idea from this super cool tutorial http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=187283.0
I cant post pictures yet because I'm a newbie, so here are the links.

Okay so once again I am completely redoing my pictures. Got tired of photobucket, the only reason I used it was for here so I decided I will just use Craftster's photo uploader. So while I am switching over my photo links will be broken. Message me if there is a post you would like the pics for.

Best idea using fused plastic bags...  This makes them more decorative.  Most of the plastic bags I get aren't too interesting looking.

I just started working on my first ever attempt at a fused plastic bag last night, but this one blows my idea out of the water. LOVE IT!
