I've been interested in fusing plastic bags for awhile now and really want to get into doing some of my own fused products. It seems to be really easy (so the instructions tell me)- but I'll let you know when I get round to testing it out for myself!

Here are some of the best fused products I've seen lately on Etsy, they are pretty darn attractive I think!

Mssmo85's fused grocery bags purse. I also really like their skull scarf (which is on sale).

And my favourite of all, Curious Doodles 'I just need to be held' Laptop case. Made from over 30 plastic bags, lined with extra soft upcycled tshirt fabric and include padded pocket channels for protection stuffed with (more) plastic bags. Perfecto.

Very cool! hop to it girlfriend! I like the fish scale purse. It would be nice to see something with scalloped edges like your poster purses too... X

Wow that lap top case is cool!
And plastic fusing is fun and surprisingly easy, just make sure you are in a well ventilated room as it is fumy and the fumes are toxic... I got a bit of a headache, but hey the end result was worth it.

thank you for the tip! I think I might invest in some sort of mask and will make sure my cat isn't around, his poor brain cells can't even stand poster paint- sounds stinky!
