This week’s Pinterest round-up features fused plastic! This stuff, made from plastic grocery bags is a great way to both recycle and create a free material, similar to a thin vinyl. And the best part is, it can go through a sewing machine! (Though I don’t sew, so this won’t be an avenue I’ll be exploring any time soon.)
Here are my findings! As always, click on the image for a link back to the original source (gotta keep up the good blogging karma, y’all).
