Hey all!

I made this vest for my Plastics for Jewelry class this semester. It's made of fused plastic bags that I laser-cut with a lace pattern. Then I fused the pieces together with an iron.

Wow!  I would have not guessed that was made out of plastic bags from seeing the photographs.  Very pretty and love that it is recycled.  Great Job.

this is just too coool! seeing the thumbnail i thought it was fabric and wondered how you got it to stay up like that then reading you post and finding out it was plastic!!! That is such a cool way to reuse plastic bags. very talented indeed!!

That's utterly amazing!!!

Is it super stiff and uncomfortable?
I've fused plastic before and got very flimsy pieces as well as very stiff plastic pieces
