Continuing the theme of bags made from bags-
I used black garbage bags and white and grey grocery bags. Both of the bags had blue and red printing on them, which I think added some nice subtle variation.
The whole bag is just single crochet- I crocheted all the pieces separately, and then sewed them together with the plastic bag yarn.
The branch motif I basically free-handed using a paper template to guide me. I had no idea what I was doing basically, but I think it turned out OK. (However, if anyone had suggestions on how to do it better in the future, I would love the advice!) Then I just pinned it on and sewed it using the black garage bag plarn.
The straps are so long I sewed them together at the top so that they wouldn't get (quite as) tangled.
So, there it is- it took nine months (I'm not a very motivated crafter sometimes), but isn't she a looker!
Thanks for looking!
