To be truthful, the bag took longer than an afternoon. But to be fair, it wouldn't take the average maker an evening to choose bags to iron... I'm happy with how it turned out, but it was more of a challenge to make than I thought it would be. The plastic took a lot (more than 1 hour!) of coaxing to melt evenly. If you try fusing, move the ironing board outside or open several windows and turn on a fan. (You probably won’t smell a thing, but the vapors are toxic.)

That is a totally cool project! Looks awesome, too.

The bag looks great! I am totally fascinated by the fused bag fabric. I love it. I haven't tried it yet. Did your friend mention fumage? Just wondering how strong are the fumes when the fusing occurs?
