i've always wanted to try crocheting something using grocery bags, but never got around to it. this challenge finally got me going! i crocheted it using grocery bags cut into one continuous strip, and a j crochet hook. i just kinda made it up as i went along.

the bag


the inside


the handles


the little decorative "flowers"


thanks for looking!

thanks for all the replies everybody! i used white walmart bags for the purse, a blue walmart bag for the big flower, and a yellow dollar general bag for the little flower. we have two of those plastic bags holders full here, so i ended up using about half of our supply, lol.

thanks! my daughter, (who's only 15 months old,) has officially claimed it as her's. she puts her little toys, crayons, and MY lipgloss, (which she also steals from me,) in it and prances around the house like a little princess. i never realized the girly girl attitude would start so early! Cheesy
