He does look a little like Ben, I think it is the glasses.

Thank you guys for all the kind words. Smiley

Too bad my ipod died right after I made this. Sad

That is fantastic!
What size hook did you use?

I wonder if you could sort of sandwich some paper in between the plastic bags? Would you be able to see what was on the paper through the plastic bags? Hmmm... definitely worth trying out I think! It would make the fabric a little stiffer where there was paper I imagine... but if you could find mostly white or solid-colored bags and put some sort of image behind them, it might be kinda nifty!

If someone tries this, let us know how it turns out. I wish I had time to do it myself but I probably won't for a few weeks!

I tried it... And it didn't really work for me. I used cut out letters with about 5 layers of plastic underneath them and one layer over them. And the paper tore through the plastic. Maybe if you put two or three layers of plastic over the paper it won't tear through the plastic.... I'll have to try again!

Thanks to jamiewatchthestars and her tutorial (https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=178442.0) I made a few headbands! Out of plastic bags!
(Sorry the pictures are a bit large.....)
First one I made:

(It's not done yet... And I think it is a bit on the wide side... Haha)

This one has flowers on it! (I cut the flowers out of different bags and put a piece of white bag over that. And then ironed away.)

Still not wearable yet.... The flowers came out nice though...

But then I made this one:

This one has a layer of white over the color as well, but this one is actually done! I glued it on to a plastic headband I already had using hot glue.
And an 'action' shot!

I really like the way this one came out. I need to get a few more headbands to finish the other ones, but I couldn't handle not posting them!

I also made another one, but I got iron happy and melted the bag so much it is way too small for a headband! So I made a wristband!

I used velcro as a closure. I don't know how much I'll wear it. Because it kind of blends in with my skin and makes it just look like I have a weird checked fungus... Or something. And that is why there is no action shot for it... Hahaha.

Well, I think I found my new obsession of the moment! I think a lot of my friends are going to get headband presents for a while!

Thank you for looking! Comments are well appreciated!  Cheesy

I love this! 
Sweet. I see sewing in my very near future.
I'm so glad you like it!
Thank you!

Thanks for your post. with your tute I just made my first dress. I added some elastic under the arms connecting the two parallel elastic strips on your dress to allow more freedom of movement in the arms and help compensate for my hollow back. 

I had to do the same after I posted this actually, and kind of forgot to come back and add that in, silly me!
And congratulations! On your first dress and the baby! YAY!

Thank you, thank you, thank you! All of you guy are so nice!
