And another plastic bag

Crocheting with plarn (plastic yarn) is just so much fun – and you can recycle unwanted plastic bags, videotapes or cassette tapes. I posted about this before. Now here’s another one…

This bag is crocheted in the round, meaning I started at the bottom & then went round & round. This way there are no seams.

Handles made from videotape










This bag is mean to be a shopping bag. I also included an inner pocket for a purse, pens, small notebooks etc and a loop for keys.

      Thank you! It’s actually pretty easy – and the bags are surprisingly sturdy. I’m still using my first bag for my weekly shop a year or so later.
