Crocheting with Plastic Bags

Don and I have been taking a fun class with Jackie Abrams in Brattleboro, VT on making a tote bag by crocheting with plastic bags. Here are some photos of the one I am making.

Folding the plastic bags in thirds and cutting off the tops and bottoms
Cutting the folded bags into strips that form loops

Cut strips of plastic loops still folded

  1. This is interesting to me as we have a number of poverty relief projects here in South Africa- all utilising plastic carrier bags to make other items for sale. All the earning from the sales of these items go back to the makers.
