Crafty Q+A: Crochet a Carryall from Recycled Plastic Bags

Hello, crafters! It's another rainy May day here in Toronto (blech). While I wait for the sun to reappear,  I thought I'd answer another question from the list I gathered during last week's giveaway. Last week, Jeannine asked: I want to make a bag out of plastic bags. I have so many plastic grocery bags…so rather than throw them out, I’d like to crochet a bag. How would I do that? crocheted-tote Well, Jeannine, today's your lucky day! I did a little searching around the Canadian Living website, and found you not one, but two, patterns for crocheted carryalls made with recycled plastic bags. If you're interested in making this project but don't know one end of a crochet hook from the other, you'll probably find this crochet tutorial handy. Like the idea of recycling yourself a new totebag, but fancy a sewing project instead? Why not try this juice-bag totebag? As always, I'd love to see what you make with these directions – leave a link in the comments, or send me an email (agilliland[AT]canadianliving[DOT]com). Don’t forget about this week’s giveaway: Hooked for Life: Adventures of a Crochet Zealot by Mary Beth Temple. Leave a comment on Monday’s post for your chance to win. Entries are open until tomorrow at 5 p.m. Have a great day!
