Back in March, I showed you the beginning of a crochet experiment (scroll down) using the non-recyclable plastic bags that come on our newspapers.
Now it is finished just in time to submit to The Purse Project for the June/July beach bag theme.
And a close up:
I started this in mid-January and used 6 months worth of plastic newspaper bags. (The white stripes are regular shopping bags.) This thing is on the gigantic side but I’m a new crocheter and wasn’t using a pattern so it’s amazing it came out as well as it did.
Not sure what to do with it now. I thought of entering it in the “trash to treasure” contest at the fair but there is a size limit and this bag is probably too big!
