Fusing plastic to calico

Top - plastic carrier bag ironed directly onto calico with a very hot iron (using baking paper over the plastic to protect the iron). The plastic got so hot it fused to the fabric. Because it has the calico base it would make a a great surface to stitch on. I haven't stitched on it yet, just stuck the sample in my book of techniques/ideas

I used this card to make image transfer samples
