I recycled my Disney World bags from our recent trip into a reusable tote--I will use it next time to pack kiddie stuff for the car (it is a 5 hour drive, so the bag needs to be BIG)!



The bags they give you every time you buy something (down to a pack of gum or mints) are huge, and made from thick plastic--they fused up into a nice fabric--the bag stands up on its own.

That bag is really cool.I just got back from Disneyland and have saved the bags from my souvenirs.I just that your project was a great way to recycle these bags.I have a question for you just in case you read this.I hope this is not a stupid question but what did you fuse to the bag in order to make it usable as a tote?Thanks if you read this.

I have about 50 of these things (my husband is a bit of a pack rat - that's my story and I'm sticking to it  Grin) laying around the house in various closets.  This is an awesome idea for our Oct. trip with multiple family members (some of whom have never been)

and I echo Lady Mozzer; if you have a link to a tutorial on fusing, or can make one yourself, that would be wonderful.

I did a basic write up on fusing and constructing the bag here:
http://goflorida.about.com/od/souvenirtips/ss/How-to-Make-a-Disney-Recycled-Tote-Bag.htm

The bags are easy to fuse with a home iron. I went ahead and stuffed them with white plastic bags from target and michaels to make a thick fabric  and to conserve the disney printed ones because I have a few more projects in mind for the bags I have left Smiley

Hope this helps & thanks!
