If you don’t carry cloth bags everywhere, you can end up with lots of extra grocery bags. Many stores have recycle bins nearby, where you can return the bags, but for clever Craftsters, the bags can become a craft supply. Here are a few things you can do with your grocery bags!

Lindsey goes to eleven made her plastic bags into plarn (plastic yarn) and crocheted this awesome lined handbag.

I love that cindyjane crocheted these bag holders out of other plastic bags. She was able to find bright colored bags to make her designs pop.
This laundry bag by ToadallyDee is both ventilated and collapsible for easy storage. Plus, if necessary, it can be thrown into the wash along with the rest of the laundry.
Crochooley wrote up a great tutorial for making bracelets with pop tabs  and plastic bag plarn.
Does your grocery supply paper bags instead of plastic? Then here’s a craft for you: slick shared her tutorial for this handy paper bag basket. It’s great for holding office or craft supplies.

I hope these ideas have your creative wheels spinning. As always, you’ll find these and more great ideas for recycled crafts right here on Craftster! Happy recycling!
