My Signature Recycled Bag

Here is my latest recycled grocery tote bag. I crocheted it using plastic bags cut 1 inch wide and added stripes using pink newspaper bags and some blue plastic bags. I designed this bag with a wide 12 inch base to hold lots of stuff. It's 18 inches across at the top and stands 12 inches tall. This is my new to-go grocery tote bag.

I love this! I've been collecting plastic grocery bags for a while to do something similar, but I find getting different colors to be difficult. I think the colored stripes are my favorite part about your bag!

Oh I too find it so difficult to find colored bags. These are pink newspaper bags and the blue ones were some given to me so not sure where they came from. I have people save bags for me and its helpful so I get some unusual colors that I don't normally find.
