    Plarn Hobo Purse Pattern

    Here is my latest little recycled bag project. It's a Hobo plarn purse crocheted with recycled brown Safeway bags. I used a K crochet hook to work this purse so it's a little smaller than the original Hobo purse pattern. I did one extra row before doing the top narrowing final rounds. Finished size is 9 inches wide by 7-1/2 inches long.

    Plastic Basket Tray

    It has been awhile since I shared a new pattern out of plastic bags or plarn as many know the material made from cut-up plastic bags. So here is a project I crocheted with plarn and wrote up the free pattern. It is a basket tray I made to hold kitchen dishcloths and other items for an upcoming charity fundraiser. I like this short tray type basket as it can be reused for folded napkins, toiletries, or other things around the house. Here is the recycled plastic basket pattern. Basket measures 8-3/4 inches long, 4 inches tall, 3-3/4 inch wide ends and with 5-3/4 inch handles.

Here is the free recycled plastic diagonal scrubbie pattern for these scrubbies. Enjoy!
  15. I recently saw some Japanese knot bags and just loved them. I thought it would be a good project for a recycled tote crocheted out of plastic bags. Here is my Japanese Plarn Tote Bag and link for the free pattern.
  16. My name is Isabelle Garbani, and I am an artist who was selected for this year's Farm/Art Dtour in Wisconsin with my proposal Invasive Species. I am calling all crochet artists to help me crochet artwork for the installation! In Invasive Species over 5000 kudzu vine leaves, crocheted from plastic shopping bags, engulf an abandoned farmhouse. The plastic leaves will climb and cling to the house, slowly "choking" it with their invasive growth. I decided to issue a Crochet Challenge in order to make all the crochet leaves I need. In this crochet contest, everyone can participate and win prizes for making leaves from recycled plastic bags (from artwork to cookies!). The tutorials on the leaf pattern and the list of all the prizes can be found at www.crochetchallenge.com Visit www.crochetchallenge.com to enter the contest!
  17. Here is my latest recycled plastic bag pattern. It's a new and improved pattern for crocheting sandals or slippers using plastic bags. I previously had crocheted some plarn sandals and wanted to revisit the pattern to make it easier to follow and simpler to crochet. Here is the link to the free crocheted pink and grey plarn sandal pattern.

    Fade to White Recycled Tote Bag

    Ever since Walmart starting using the dirty white bags, I've been thinking about crocheting a reusable tote bag using them in a project. Here is what I came up with.
