Many of you have been wondering what in the world we were going to do with the fused plastic we have been making. So we wanted to share the first of several projects we are working on: a bib made from fused plastic grocery bags! This are practically free to make, and would be great to throw in your diaper bag. And if you accidentally leave it somewhere, no big deal!
This is a super-simple project and takes very little time to make. Using fused plastic made from our earlier tutorial, we first traced a bib that we had on hand and cut it out.
We then also made a pocket for it. This is totally optional.
Finally, we added bias tape to the pocket, attached it, then sewed bias tape around the entire bib! We then finished it off my adding some Velcro to the ends.
Realistically, you can make this project as simple or as involved as you wish. As we mentioned before, you don't have to add a pocket or the bias tape. These bibs are very durable, but we don't recommend putting them in the washing machine. Just hand wash them or wipe them off and hang them up to dry! They are a fun way to recycle all those bags you have and can make a great statement! Enjoy!
