My Signature Recycled Bag

« on: January 06, 2008 01:42:52 PM »

If you need a new cosmetic bag, here's my latest one crocheted from recycled bread bags.

This took about 15 bags to make and I cut them into strips about 1/2 inch wide. Because bread bag plastic bags are so much thicker than retail plastic bags, it works easier to cut the strips a bit thinner. This bag is 4 inches wide, 6 inches long with about a 2-1/2 wide base to hold several cosmetic things. It's shaped somewhat like a wedge and fits nicely into the bottom of my purse. It was crocheted using HDC stitch and a "N" U.S.A. sized aluminum crochet hook. If you'd like to try this project, here is the link to the free pattern. http://www.myrecycledbags.com/2008/01/03/cosmetic-bag-crocheted-from-bread-bags/
