Crochet Plastic Shopping bags


I thought these crocheted bags made of plastic shopping bags might be a good segue way from Sunday Scribbling. A great project to do in celebration of Sundays Earth Day! A few weeks ago I found a pattern links on Kate’s blog of how to construct these amazing little bags. I thought they were a nice metaphor solution for all the flimsy grocery bags we are often stuck with on a weekly basis! Imagine these as your new shopping bags!

This is a great way to recycle those bags, for sure and sure better than sending them off to become landfill.

What a great recycling idea! It looks really cool. I wish I could read a crochet pattern - I can (just barely) single and double crochet. Maybe one of these days I'll figure more of it out. Thanks for the cool idea!

These are so cool! I love to crochet and when I find some time (most likely not gonna happen until we get moved!) I'll try these for sure. Thanks for the links.

Your crochet bag is so cool- and waterproof too! Did it take a long time to turn the bags into a ball of "yarn"?

That's a pretty cool project.

Great project - which alas, I don't have time to do. But I admire those who do! And I do carry my own shopping bag, rather than use the plastic ones here.
