Ironing plastic bags together makes a very robust material to work with. Tabea made a bag out of it.
Tabea says: ”The upper part consists of an old canvas bag with attached leather parts for strenghtening. The lowest bit of the bag was cut off.
The bottom part is made of big plastic bags. I cut those into pieces and ironed layers together using paper between iron and plastic. The heat makes it melt together and creates a very stable plastic foil. I sewed the foil to the canvas bag as a robust bottom piece.”
