Upcycled Patriotic Clutch Made from Fused Plastic Bags




On my last post, Fusing Plastic Bags into a Sewable Material, I mentioned that I had made a bag out of some of my fused recycled plastic grocery bags. 


 As a reminder, this is what it looked like before it was made into a bag.


And...voila!  Here is the Patriotic Plastic Bag Clutch.  My sweet daughter was nice enough to model it for me.






She just got the Texan coin purse from her Texan born Mee Maw.  Matches perfectly!
I wanted to add some velcro, but I ran out.  I'll have to add that later.

 A little Decorative Trim and hot glue on some stars and hearts, and we are set for the 4th!

And there is the Blue Jean Upcycle.  I had to get that in there.  I had never thought of using blue jeans for a lining before, but it's nice!

Making a bag from Fused Plastic
 This project turned out so much nicer than I ever imagined.  It's actually very lovely and perfect for the 4th!  By-the-way, if you like the bracelet my little girl is wearing, hop on over to my post on the Blue Jean Rosette Bracelets. 

I'd love to know if any of you have ever tried fusing plastic before.  I'd love for you to leave me a comment or question.   

If this is your first time visiting Gina's Craft Corner, I'd love for you to follow me so you can keep up on all my new projects.  You can find me on Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest, or Google Friends Connect on the sidebar.
