Remember how my wallet got stolen?
Well, I've been without ever since.
At a farmer's market, this girl was selling super cute bags and coin purses and then I found out they were made out of plastic bags!
Yeah, you can iron plastic bags to make fabric!
And then do whatever you want!
Like make a wallet!
See?I followed this tutorial but the basics are...
1) Splay* out six-8 plastic bags (if they have writing, make sure it's on the inside or covered by a clear plastic bag cuz it melts)
*grooosssss word2) Sandwich between wax paper
3) Iron them on low-medium (I did one above the 'rayon' setting).
4) Flip, iron other side.
When it feels like they're all one solid piece, peel off the wax paper (duh) and go make something!
What I liked about my old wallet is that it held my phone.
So, I made this one to do the same...

Let me know if you try it!
The actual ironing is super fast.
The sewing is where the time goes.
But it's so fun you don't realize where the hours went!
