Project of the week: Plasic Bag yarn

If you are anything like me you save all those plastic bag that you get while out shopping and never end up using all of them so here is a great way to use up come of those bags:

Make a purse

How to Creat the Yarn:
Step 1: Take one grocery and smooth it out flat.

Step 2: Fold it in half lengthwise and smooth out again.

Step 3: Fold in half again, and smooth out.

Step 4: Cut off the bottom seam, and the handles at the top.

Step 5: Fold in half again.

Step 6: Cut the strip into 1 inch  pieces…

until you’ve cut the whole strip.
Step 7: Open up the loops…

Step 8: Remember making rubberband chains when you were a kid?

Well, it’s like that.

Do this over and over and over until you’re sitting in a big pile of grocery bag yarn.

Stuff it all into a bag and then–when you’re in the mood you can crochet any hand bag of your choosing!
