~ quirky and unexpected ~
Sorry I can't help here but I'll be interested to find out too as I've often thought about having a go at this.Just a suggestion but could it be something to do with the type of plastic. Are you mixing them together? Teresa x
I have no idea! I have fused it successfully doing it the same way you are.....weird.
The parts with holes are ironed too much. I recognize that from my own attempts.Are you using 4 layers of plastic bag? Not enough layers or too many can be a problem.When you say "baking paper," you mean the non-waxed stuff, right? Try maybe using waxed paper... ???Good luck!!!
I don't know what to tell you. I use parchment paper, which might be baking paper. I prefer to fuse 2 layers at a time, slowly. Then I fuse 2 sets of fused 2 layer bags together to make 4 layers thick. The holes mean that your iron is to hot. I used a wool setting on mine. The holes are interesting though. You could totally rock the holes.
Hi! I've just found your blog through a Ravelry link (the easy peasy crochet bag i think) :) Nice tuts! Thanx for sharing :D I've been wanting to try fusing plastic for a while but haven't yet so I have no tips on it but I have found some useful videos on YouTube. This one is from Etsy: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PNziDXtm1SA. And this one is from ThreadBanger: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0oddEWnj7X0. It's on fusing plastic bags to make a laptop case. I'm sure you're doing it right... but this is the only way I could try to help heh. Hope the videos are useful. :)
