Plastic Bag Purse

Making a bag such as this is not anywhere near as difficult as it may look if you know how to crochet.  First, you strip the plastic bags down so they are in about 1 inch strips.  They can be wider or thinner, depending on the size of your crochet hook.  Then, chain 26 and work back and forth, starting a new row when you get to the end of an old one until the strip is the size you would like your purse.  Sew up the sides and add a button, and you have yourself a recycled purse.  *we have a few of these made now, but we have also started on a larger project involving crocheted plastic bags.  Soon to come, a plastic bag jacket*
