I fiddled around with the lining until it fit.  Then I inserted the sewing needle behind the single crochet (this way I did not have to pierce the plastic,) then caught the fabric, and so on.  I used muslin for the lining making it a trifle loose and eased it in to allow for give.  Believe it or not the crochet plastic does have a little give.

I've crocheted plastic bags, so that wasn't an issue. I just couldn't see how you attached the muslin. Thanks! I'm anxious to try it on my next project.  Grin

These are great! I have been wanting to make a plastic bag crochet tote for awhile but I am working on collecting enough bags (i usually use fabric bags) and i will have to give your pattern a shot! They look great and I love how there are spots of color like tweed yarn has.
Wonderful!

The pattern is very simple.  It is all in single crochet.  It uses 40 some odd bags.  I suggest collecting approx. 50 of them.  If you ever want the pattern, just PM me with your email address.

This is a great way to reuse plastic bags!
