Jane West is showing you my current project-in-progress. It's going to be a purse or tote bag. Can you recognize what it is made from?
It's made from plastic bags from Walmart, H.E.B. and other places. The bags are smoothed out, and cut across into loops, which are then looped together into a long rope and rolled into a ball.I really like how this is turning out.
But now I need to cut some more plastic bags. This is a photo I took when I was cutting the first batch of bags. I really, REALLY like this project, not only because it is recycling, but because I like the look of crocheting with this free material. Besides bags, you can make useful floor mats from plastic as well.
