Recycled plastic bag envelope

This masterpiece of engineering is a mailing envelope which transforms into a tote bag - instructions on how to make it are here on the Etsy blog.

You can make it out of plastic fabric, or why not try making your own fabric out of plastic bags for a complete recycled craft experience. Making plastic bag fabric is easy, the final result is strong and really useful for bags, baby bibs, purses. I made a wonderful bag this way, about 5 years ago and as soon as I find it, I'll post a picture: it's gone into that cupboard upstairs that leads to Narnia...
