I love fusing plastic bags, and am forever on the lookout for good ones! My son recently had his wisdom teeth out, and brought home some awesome medical waste bags. So, as a reminder of his trip to hospital I made a bag from them, an old seatbelt and a piece of black glittery polar fleece. Here's the front
I love looking at the sprites people post, but I never really understood how they were done, not being a gamer. I always click on the links, see the image and think well, now what? Finally I worked it out (d'oh!) So here is my first attempt at pasting a picture into paint, and following the grid. Hope you like it! I should have ironed it, by I was so excited that Little My actually worked.
I crocheted these plastic bag holders from - what else? - plastic bags. Each holder used about 53 bags. They are about 40 centimetres long, and hold heaps of empty bags. I love crochet, such a great way to procrastinate!
I'm so inspired by everything craftster user recycledcindy does. Here are my crochet plastic bag shopping bags, based on a recent pattern she posted. I love the colours available, and it's so much fun to do. Sorry about the photos - batteries running low, and I'm not the greatest photographer (no patience, hee hee)
This is my first attempt at crocheting a picture; it looks okay, I think.
i am in awe of the cross stitch ninja, and found this link on her website and I'm sorry, I don't know what it is, but if you google it you'll find it. My photo is a bit blurry, but i cannot believe that an almost monochromatic stencil can come out so good as a cross stitch. I'm so inspired, I've been walking round the city taking photos, and working out how to do a cross stitch graffitti piece! Here's my banksy, and sorry again that there's no link, but you can find it easily enough.
So I crocheted heaps of granny spquares from plastic bags, and couldn't work out what to do with them. Crochet gals on the Crochet page suggested a bag, I found a really cool pattern on the crochetalong page, and here is what I made. It took 127 plastic bags, and my fingers are still aching, but I loooove it, and its so strong.
I made a heap of plastic bag granny squares, and used Inga's pattern to sew them together. It's a really nice pattern, I was amazed it came out so nicely. I crocheted the squares together with 1 dc in 1 square, 2 chain and 1 dc into the square on the opposite side. The bag is huge, maybe 50 centimetres long, but it's perfect for going to the market.
I really should clean the house before I take photos, but it cuts into valuable crochet time!
