Here is my latest recycled tote bag that was crocheted from plastic bags cut 1 inch wide. I used some red and grey bags to add stripes to spice up this tote bag for our upcoming Relay for Life fundraising auction. I used this plarn grocery tote bag pattern.

I cut the strips 1 inch wide and connect the loops together using this tutorial. http://www.myrecycledbags.com/2007/02/17/instructions-for-cutting-plastic-bags-creating-recycled-plastic-yarn/ Click on the photos to super-size them.

 

If you go to my blog I have lots of pictures and patterns to help you crochet a recycled bag.
