Trashy Fiber Clutch

I got into a trade on one of my yahoo groups, Called fiber artist Traders. It's one of my favorite groups. They are all ways coming up with new things to try. These are called Trashy Clutches. I made 2 one to trade and one to keep.
You take plastic bags and melt to paper (I used freezer paper) but you can use paper bags if you have them. I took 3 bags a white with yellow lettering, A black one, and a yellow with green lettering. I melted them to the freezer . It made enough for 2 bags. I lined it with a batik and used iron on fusible fleece between. Then I quilted it with variegated thread. I then sprayed it with a clear paint I got on a sale table a long time ago. Trimmed it, folded it, and stitched it up. Added a big bead and a pony tail elastic for a closer. It was kind of fun and it didn't take long to do.
