DIY: Plastic Bag Totes

You know all those plastic bags you’ve been saving? Well, there really is something you can do with them. Eclipse has a fantabulous tutorial on how to turn your plastic bags into handy dandy totes. Make a bunch and use them as your new and improved grocery bags. Then you’ll really be a lean, green, shopping machine.

The totes are made of several layers of fused together plastic bags and then sewn together to make a tote. You can also make handles out of the fused together bags. And we also like the idea of braiding sheets of plastic bags together to for the handles.
