Melting Plastic and Stitch

This sample is plastic and sweet wrappers fused together by ironing them between sheets of baking paper

I cut several different coloured plastic carrier bags (and plastic sweet wrappers too) into small triangle pieces. I melted them together and stitched on them with my sewing machine

Then I repeated this three more times. I cut up the material, mixed up the pieces, melted it together again, stitched it, cut it up again ... and so on. Repeat the process as many times as you like until you get a base you are happy with ...
