An 'unusual' fabric.....

I've seen tutorials online for fusing plastic shopping bags and I have finally gotten around to trying it myself.

Outside:


Inside:

I fused several shopping bags together, but for the outer layer, I used a black trash bag. For added stability, I chose to add a fabric (with light interfacing) lining. I used a snap for closure. The 'lopsided' flap is intentional - I promise! ;)
It turned out cute, I think.....
Thoughts are welcome!!! :)


Oh - one note - as I tried this with my first attempt - stenciling with paint, on the plastic is NOT recommended - it will not stick... lol. Perhaps another type of paint might work though.
