I love it when people send me interesting project ideas for the blog. It looks like I made these really cool, creative items, when, in fact, it was actually someone else! My friend D. sent in these photos of a tote she made from fused plastic grocery bags.
The idea is based on one published in the most recent CRAFT magazine.I found an online tutorial explaining the simple process right here. This is the method CRAFT uses for the tote bag project.
The question I ask, whenever someone sends me a project suggestion, "Is it simple enough that a monkey could do it?" If so, then it is a good craft project for me. I don't have much patience for long, involved, multi-step projects. I want to start and finish things in one afternoon. So, D., Could a monkey do this?
