I made my bag out of plastic grocery bags.

Each square is a full grocery bag folded up so that it would be heavy duty.

I hand stitched on the red grocery bag to make a reduce/recycle/reuse heart.

The strap is made from braided bags.


The only materials used were plastic bags and thread!  Grin

I had so much fun with this challenge and am happy with the way this turned out. I feel so ecofriendly when I carry my bag and love the inspiration craftser gives me!

Thanks so much for looking!!

great idea for people who do not crochet or knit! 

love how you highlighted the bag with the recycle symbol!

You should be proud to carry that bag to shop!
