After my first one (http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=231876.msg2529110#msg2529110), I got tired of it and sold it on eBay lol.  Then, I started a new one.  This one only took me like two weeks -if you put all the time together-.  I like this one a lot more.  I made the plastic yarn twice as thick so it feels quite a bit sturdier.  It's not quite as bulky but, since I made the top bigger, it should still hold a good amount of stuff.  I made the pocket on the inside, mesh so thinkgs could be seen easier and it would stretch a little bit.  The top is about 23 inches across and the bottom is about 11 inches across.  Again, this one is 100% recycled too.  I hope you like it!  (I already started cutting up more bags to make a new one!!!! lol)



(I have woven in that last little piece hanging out on the bottom right side of the pocket)

That came out nice, I like the inside pocket.  I've only made one too, and now I have a ton of plastic to make more, but it hurts my hands to crochet the plarn. I cut my last strips thinner, I never thought that it would make the bag less strong.......can't win!  Nice job on yours!

The secret is is to use a slightly bigger hook than your yarn.  And occasionally take your hook into the kitchen and wash it with soap.  Stuff on the bag sticks the hook.
