I used old plastic bags cut into long strips and knitted them together. I then sewed a liner that snaps in and out of the bag out of old fabric I had laying around. I used the same fabric for the handles and snap reinforcements. The liner is removeable to clean or if you want to use it as a beach/pool bag.

What a great bag! I've seen this done with crocheting, but not knitting.  I'll have to try that.

Thanks for the kind words, the knitting is hard at first the plastic kept getting stuck on the needles for the first two rows then it got much easier
