Upcycled Challenge: Grocery Bag to Fabric #freefromtrash

Just don't have it in me today to craft so taking the easy way out and linking to a cool tutorial from the Etsy Labs Archive about fusing plastic grocery bags together to make a waterproof fabric. There are some great things on Etsy made from this type of fused "fabric" such as these cute Bibs from recyclemoe, this amazing ring from CynthiaDelGiudice and this neat fused wallet from Bece.

What else could you make with this type of fused waterproof fabric?

This post is part of the Upcycled Crafting Challenge (#freefromtrash) hosted by Calley, The Eco Chic, and is part of a one month challenge to create from trash.  This challenge will hopefully open your eyes to the number of items that we still end up trashing every day that could be used by ourselves or our kids to create fun and useful items.  To find out more about the challenge and to see other projects click on over to Calley’s announcement post.
