Return to Plastic Bags

DSC_0853My fascination with plastic bags continues. Many people will have overheard me say "that one's a good colour - keep it!" Sadly I accumulate them, along with the glorious colours and textures of fruit nets, at a far greater rate than I can use them.

However, here finally is a finished project in full colour, in honour of my brother's 30th birthday and new home.
Various experimentations - I used the heat press rather than an iron (great plan!), I joined pieces using a soldering iron rather than an iron (great plan!), and I used tiny pieces as decoration (not such a great plan, they are prone to curling, but perhaps a feature to take advantage of). Next stop ... a pink lantern!
