There's even photographic proof.
My palynologically minded friend and I attended the Etsy Houston Craft Party at Sew Crafty in the Heights. The event was pretty well attended and featured free snacks, beverages, and project ideas. The lovely item you see modeled here is a delightful fabric covered bulletin board that now resides in my entryway/kitchen/living room. One of the other cool areas focused on fusing plastic bags from the grocery and whatnot to make new, sturdy items. I may have to get an iron.
