21  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / My Eco Elegant two tone green plarn (plastic yarn) purse on: August 28, 2009 08:59:42 AM

Sharing my newest plarn purse - this purse was made from the vegetable/fruit bags you get at the grocery store.   It's so soft, you won't believe it's plastic yet strong and durable just like my other plarn purses/totes and market bags. 



I have additional pictures of different views on my blog of this purse: http://plastiqrecreation.blogspot.com/

23  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / Plarn (plastic yarn) New York Yankee and Jacksonville Jaquars Pouches on: August 24, 2009 09:56:25 AM


I wanted to show everyone the crocheted pouches I made.  I love to make pouches of all sizes - carry as a keychain, as a wristlet for that quick trip to the store or to keep stuff organized in my bags.   

I used vinyl lining on the inside for easy cleaning where I use to keep my makeup in or for a sandwich and vinyl lining on the outside to protect the fabric.





Thanks for looking
24  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / My Multi-Green Plarn Necklace on: August 19, 2009 09:16:56 AM


I came across this beautiful lightweight, multi-green plastic and after starting to work it it, decided it was the perfect enhancement to an outfit I had planned on wearing.  So I made a necklace out of it.

Still on this plastic ring kick, I crocheted alternating the white with green lettering plastic with the multi-green plastic.  Then connected the circles with jump rings.  It's big enough to fit over my neck but I also made it with a clasp.



25  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / My Plarn version of a placemat bag on: August 19, 2009 09:04:16 AM


After seeing this placemat tutorial pattern: http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=93668.0  I fell in love with the concept and decided to make one for myself.  This is my crochet version of it.

Here are some additional photos of it: http://plastiqrecreation.blogspot.com/


26  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / My newest plarn (plastic yarn) creation - Brown/White Placemat Plarn Bag on: August 13, 2009 09:00:39 AM
I think I have finally made a bag that suits my needs ... I've tried downsizing and it just didn't work.  But I just didn't want to carry around a suitcase.  I designed this bag from my favorite oval placemat pattern I created then just started to square up so to speak the corners.
 
The worst part about this project was sewing the zipper.  Don't know why but I find sewing a zipper to be challenging even with all the tutorials and youtube videos...  We just don't get along.

The circles at the base of each strap are the rings from a water bottle when you break the cap.  I wanted to give the bag an extra flair.





27  CROCHET / Crochet: Discussion and Questions / How to sew a zipper lining into a crochet Bag/Tote? on: June 22, 2009 09:23:10 AM
Let me say for the record I have a fear of zippers

95% of all the crochet bags I create I sew a lining.  But I always use snaps, hooks, etc..  Except if my stitches are too big for the machine, I hand sew the lining. 

Does anyone know of any tutorials that are available to give step by step instructions on how to sew a zippered lining into a crochet bag/tote?

Of all the zippered lining tutorials I've read, I'm just not figuring out how to do it for a crochet bag.  Does that make sense?
28  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / The 7-10 Split anyone can pick up on: June 08, 2009 03:30:01 PM
Hi -
My 19yr old son asked me to make a graduation gift for a female bowling friend.  And, of course, when I asked him to tell me alittle something about her so I could get ideas of what to make her, all I got was - she's a girl what more is there to say.   That was a big help.  I wanted to give her something bowling related so I just let my imagination run wild and make 1 bowling when led to making a bowling ball.  Somehow or another, 1 pin and 1 ball led to making this bag. 

Hence, the birth of a 7-10 Split Plarn bag.  He gave it to her out in the parking lot so not to draw too much attention.  That didn't work because she ended up taking it into the bowling center and before the tournament started, showed it to EVERYONE.



Here's the lining I sewed into the bag, I tried to get closer but if I got too close, the image started to blur:


I wanted to share my craziness with my new found craft friends.  Hope you enjoy!!

Teresa
