A Plastic Bag-Recycled from Plastic Bags ;)

Well, after three summers, I have finished this bag. I think I started this bag before I went to Florida one summer with my mom. And, I brought this bag with me. (I'm making it for my mom.) I was going to do a blue stripe in it, but Wal Mart stopped carrying the blue plastic bags, so I didn't have anything that would 'work'. Then I joined the Plastic Bag CAL at Crochetville, and posted my dilemna. Someone sent me some blue Wal Mart bags! It was one of the things I had put on my Wish List, too. That's how bad I am. :p I still have some blue left, I can use for a stripe on another bag. I have another one started already, too. I did notice (when I was on the second to last round) that I made a mistake in the pattern. In my own defense, I picked this up after two years of not working on it. And, the bag I had started meantime, is in sc's... so the way my brain is (not working) lately... I started the blue stripe in sc's. Instead of hdc's. And so it looks funny to me. Well maybe my mom won't notice, since she doesn't crochet. She'll probably just be amazed that I finished it. :p I also have about fifty tan Kroger bags. I'd like to do something with them, too.

that bag is great! does it stand up ok by itself or is it floppy? did the bags hurt your hands? were they hard to work with? sorry for the 20 questions!

Mimi said...

Would want to know the answers to above questions too ;)
Vey nice bag, Tina!

Hi Allena and Hi Mimi! Yes, it does stand up by itself pretty good. The bags were kind of hard to work with, and they did hurt my hands. I could only do so much at a time, then I'd have to stop and take a break.
Thanks for stopping by! :)

That bag is really cute....I almost started one once but ended up doing something else. You're tempting me to try again.

Lucy- there's a 'Plastic Bag CAL' going on at Crochetville. If you decide to start one up again. The one I just finished was going on three years since I finished it. So, believe me, I know what you mean. :p Thanks for visiting!!
