DIY Reuse Plastic Bags

3. Recycled Grocery Totes by Made

Dana from Made gives a step-by-step tutorial on how to fuse your plastic grocery bags together to make a reusable grocery tote. Basically, you melt the grocery bags together to make a stronger, longer-lasting plastic. I absolutely love the labels she places on the totes as well. You’ll need an iron and a sewing machine to complete this project, but Dana’s instructions make it look like a piece of cake. Overall, this tutorial is so detailed and looks totally fun to make!
