My Signature Recycled Bag

« on: November 03, 2009 08:26:52 PM »

I had a request for a turquoise plastic bag keeper. I wanted to make it from plastic bags but finding turquoise bags is nearly impossible so I checked my stash and found some turquoise colored fingering yarn. So what I did was put together plastic bags or plarn and the fingering yarn. Here is my result.



It's as close as I could come to turquoise and still make this handy bag holder from mostly recycled materials. I also used the fingering yarn for trim and the ties for my bag. It's 18 inches long and not only used up lots of plastic bags to crochet this but also can hold them for reuse in your kitchen.

It's a really simple little pattern which is worked all in rounds so no seams. The free crochet pattern is posted at my blog site listed in my siggy. Rainbow colors will be beautiful for sure.
