1  Recycled Plastic Striped Grocery Tote in Crochet: Completed Projects by RecycleCindy on: October 27, 2012 07:17:19 PM
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.

2  Plarn Gingham Purse in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by RecycleCindy 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.

3  How about some Camo Plarn? in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by RecycleCindy 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.

4  Recycled T-Shirt Flower Baby Bib in Crochet: Completed Projects by RecycleCindy on: July 12, 2010 07:08:15 PM
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.

5  Denim Oven Mitt in Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by RecycleCindy on: June 06, 2010 09:09:03 AM
Here is my oven mitt I made from recycled denim. I made the denim shell first and the lining pieces separate. Once I finished the lining, I just inserted it inside the denim oven mitt.

6  Recycled Denim Coaster in Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by RecycleCindy on: May 22, 2010 01:09:33 PM
Here is a denim coaster I made by using two hem strips from a pair of jeans. You cut the hems real close and glue it together.

7  VCR Tape Designer Bag in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by RecycleCindy on: May 02, 2010 06:34:47 PM
I just finished up my first official designer purse made from recycled vcr tape. The bag was crocheted using two strands of vcr tape held together using a N crochet hook. I then lined it and put a magnetic closure inside and a button outside on the flap.

8  Plarn Fat Bottom Bag in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by RecycleCindy on: April 17, 2010 01:37:51 PM
I finally crocheted my first fat bottom bag. This project was crocheted from about 40+ plastic newspaper bags I recycled using a N crochet hook. I added a center flap and lined the bag with some clearance fabric I found at my local Ben Franklins.

I really enjoyed working this pattern and want to try it again using wool yarn.

9  Recycled Denim Baby Bibs in Clothing for Kids: Completed Projects by RecycleCindy on: April 05, 2010 07:49:49 PM
Here are a couple of denim baby bibs I made from some old jeans. The first one I used a trimmed side seam for the ties and the other one I just used some ribbon. They are pretty easy to make and are very durable for washing too.

10  My Trashy Rug in Crochet: Completed Projects by RecycleCindy on: March 28, 2010 11:42:01 AM
I crocheted this rug using plastic trash and thus the name Trashy Rug. I used recycled bags from bread, hotdog buns, bagels, toilet paper, frozen foods, hashbrowns, paper towel packaging, hamburger buns, taco shells, hoagie buns, and other pieces of plastic from numerous products having plastic packaging. This plastic is the heavier gauge stuff and its much harder to crochet and does make your hands and joints sore so take lots of breaks when you crochet this.

I used an N (9) crochet hook and single crochet throughout. One thing about all the plastic trash -- it's colorful and makes for an unique looking rug.
