My Signature Recycled Bag

« on: March 29, 2007 07:03:26 PM »

Here is my recon of plastic grocery bags into a shoulder bag purse. This is one of the first items I ever made from recycled plastic bags. I finally got around to testing and writing out the pattern. If you are interested here is the link to the free pattern. http://www.myrecycledbags.com/2007/03/29/crochet-a-recycled-plastic-shoulder-bag/

Enjoy!  Grin

Check out Lindsay-goes-to-eleven for very inspiring pictures. She made one for me in a personal swap that looks like a million bucks. And she put plastic needlepoint canvas on the bottom to keep it square.

My stash of supplies is now Beyond Life Expectancy. I love personal swaps! http://www.wists.com/redmennis
