Making a bag out of trash/plastic bags

This topic has been raised a few times on KH and I thought this such a good little YouTube vid about it (and note the classy way the copyright is handled) :). The guys who have been this video together have some wonderful project instructions for silk screening and so on.

[FONT=Comic Sans MS][SIZE=3][COLOR=darkorchid]Great idea! I’d use freezer paper instead of wax paper, tho. It’d make great lining for purses, beach bags, etc.:happydance:[/COLOR][/SIZE][/FONT]

I thought the same thing re wet packs and beach gear.

(Sorry for typos earlier)

Why the freezer paper do you think - it wouldn’t stick to a hot iron?

It would be sooo cool to make a backpack like that. xD

I cant sew though. and I’m not even sure we have an iron. o.o;

I love this idea, but I wish my Publix had white bags instead of this ugly tan/brown color. :expressionless:

Pretty clever.

[FONT=Comic Sans MS][SIZE=3][COLOR=darkorchid]Yes, exactly. Freezer paper’s waxed on only one side. Better for the iron, I’d think.[/COLOR][/SIZE][/FONT]

Indeed…good point.

I started knitting with plastic bags a few months ago to make a beach bag for my mom’s birthday. I had to quit because the plastic bags were making my hands break out in hives.:ick:


Well, the technique the guys show may be a way you could make the bag without all the hand touching knitting requires :slight_smile: Terrible when that happens (hives I mean).
