Once upon a time I made a crocheted doily clock using plastic bags, as well as a crocheted placemat using plastic bags, and now at long last I had the chance to use up some of the balls of purple plarn (plastic bag yarn) that I had hanging around to make a fun crocheted plastic bag basket, which makes a sweet basket for tiny toys, fruit or even for Purim gift gift giving! Crocheting with plastic bags is so much fun, and for those of us who do care about minimizing our footprint, using those plastic bags instead of tossing them is so very satisfying!
As you may or may not know, I love the challenge of crocheting with non-traditional materials, and I have to say, that crocheting with plastic bags is actually quite enjoyable as the material is somewhat flexible, as opposed to rope or yarn made from rags.
So gather a ton of grocery bags, scour the neighborhood (or an adjacent state if you live in California!) f you have to, make some yarn from those bags, and lets get crocheting! This sweet basket can be made easitly in an evening in a few hours, and if you're like me, you'll probably want to make a few more!
