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.

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.

looks great, how did the sewing machine handle going through the plarn?

The lining is hand sewn in. I only used the sewing machine to make the lining and the pocket inside the lining. Once I had the lining done, I then hand-stitched it in place through the plarn. I know that we aren't to share links but if you go to my signature there is a link to my blog with the project details.

What an awesome idea.  I love the gingham.  How long did it take you?

Thanks! It really didn't take that much time after I had the three different colors of plarn cut and ready to crochet with. It is just two panels and then crochet them together around on 3 sides. The lining and getting it all put together took longer as I just had to get my sewing machine out and get motivated to get the lining sewn. 
7  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Plarn Gingham Purse on: October 07, 2012 10:34:14 AM
Here is a gingham purse I crocheted with recycled plastic bags. The project uses about 15 white, grey, and black plastic bags. I cut them about 1 inch wide and assembled them using the looping method. I used a three color gingham style to crochet the shell with half double crochet stitches with a N (9 mm) hook. I lined the bag, added a magnetic closure and some store bought plastic handles.

I'm always looking for new and unique ways I can craft with plarn so doing a gingham design was a new challenge and after several attempts, this was the final product.

8  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / How about some Camo Plarn? on: July 26, 2010 02:58:51 PM
I present two of my camo plarn ditty bags. The first one is winter camo made from black, white and grey recycled plastic bags. The second one is just regular camo with lots of colors like orange, tan, brown, white, grey, and green. It's a great way to use up odd colors and random bags you may have.

I got this free pink t-shirt at my thrift store as it had a bleach stain. I cut it into 1/4" wide strips and crocheted this baby bib. I added the flowers to spice it up a bit. See pattern at my blog if you'd like to crochet this.

Its a great looking throw rug and I love that you used recycled materials. The star-shape in the red, white, and blue is so patriotic!
