That is great! I love it. I am putting this idea down for later. I would love to try this. Well done, and I LOVE the words you fused down the sides. Very nifty!


Oh that looks great! It looks like a piece of modern art!


I'm so glad you posted this. I use "green" bags when I go to the grocery store but I don't like putting my cold stuff in them because they get wet. This would work perfectly for that! blessings, marlene


I am so impressed with this bag! So cute and functional. I like Marlene's idea of using it at the grocery store for cold stuff and also for produce!


It is really cute. What a great idea.


That is brilliant. I just bought a few plastic bags at the store a few days ago...who knew you could do this. Thanks for the idea!

Neat project! I want to try this too!


That is ADORABLE! I can't wait to try this! Linking...


Wow. I totally want to make these. I heard it costs more money to recycle plastic bags than it does to make them. Doing this would make me feel better about using them. I try to get paper wherever I go and can't remember to get the reusable ones. I should just make my own! They'd be cooler anyway.

How cool is that. I never heard of that before now. It sounds like fun and pretty easy to do. I will have to give it a try.

I love how yours come out. Thanks for sharing.



I had booked marked this a long time ago, but as with other things, your take on it is way better.

Penny, I love this idea! I'm thinking of the perfect paper to put in the middle. I just rec'd these beautiful grocery bags from a small coffee shop; they look antique and have antique sewing machines on them. This would be adorable!

Thanks so much

Amy @ parkcitygirl

this is another great idea Penny! I've seen fusing the bags, but adding to it is an excellent way to make it your own :)

Rachael Rabbit

I'm desperate to try this technique - thank you so much for the tips.




This is a great idea! Hope you don't mind if I link this. Can't wait to make my own, I just hope it turns out as cute as yours!

how do I send this to my daughter at jenpedwards@embarqmail? She has a blog as a knitter and an artist. Please contact her.


This is amazing, I'll use this technique not only for a grocery bag, I have my laundry machine out side my house at my patio, and this is much better than fabric! I'll just need all my neighbors bags! Thanks!!!
