Day 15

Today I made a bag out of bags. I picked up the idea from Iggy Jingles Blog and she had a link to the instructions on Gooseflesh blog. Since I have an overabundance of those plastic grocery bags at home, just waiting for some useful purpose, this was perfect. You know I hate to throw these things away, there has to be something to do with piles and piles of plastic grocery bags. I know many people use fabric bags but I shop for a month at a time and have no where near the amount of fabric bags it would take to do that. LOL.

Anyway back to my thing a day. Making the strips of plastic was easy, crocheting with it a bit more difficult than yarn BUT certainly still easy. The bag is a bit stretchy because of the plastic but certianly durable. Thinking it would be great for the beach. May have to make a few more of these.

I have stumbled upon your blog!

What a great idea for those bags! I too have an abundance of them and try to assuage my guilt at having them by using them over and over. But sooner or later they are done. I haven't yet found a place to drop these buggers off for recycling. (The grocery store in town that used to have a collection drum for them went out of business.)

So thanks for the great tip!

That is just too cool, Pam!! I love it! Maybe you can make enough of them to use for grocery shopping once a month. LOL
