Fused Plastic and Salvaged Fabric Laptop Bag

As a gal who enjoys whipping out the sewing machine and also someone who ends up with way too many plastic bags (regardless of using our reusable ones most of the time) I am very happy to have come across this video tutorial. This looks fairly simple, not too many steps, and will be a very personalized item. So cool!

Very creative and a really good use for all those plastic bags! These would be great in your Etsy shop! Me... I can't sew a straight line. LOL

Thanks Karen, I have considered doing one just to see how it turns out but I actually want to modify it to a messenger bag style instead. We'll see about adding it, could be fun!

Thanks for checking it out Alicia! If you get one & make this let me know how it turns out!

Very cool. I'd thought about weaving plastic bags into a bag, but not fusing them. Great ideas! Thanks for sharing, Jenn.
