    Are these fused? I have tried to fuse bags, no luck, either they scrivel up, or they make a hole.

      I don't understand your question. These totes are recycled coffee bags and pet feed bags. I recycle feed bags and coffee bags, I wash them, and cut them by pattern that I make and sew them together.

    I loved the idea of reusing these material.

    I am inspired. I have some large plastic washing powder sacks which I think would be strong enough with some lining , but I am still figuring out what sort of lining. I will keep you up to date, but if you have any suggestions I would welcome them.

      Let me know how it turns out, I'd love to see it!


      I have tried many types of plastic bags but the only ones I've found that hold up are the woven Polypropylene such as animal feeds come in, and the coffee bags that are the laminated foil and plastic such as starbucks and other such coffee comes packaged in. One tip I will give you, I use cotton strap for handle and cover with the same material that I make the tote from. It is much longer wearing and comfortable.
