    Trying to get away from those plastic grocery bags to help keep our oceans clean and less harmful for the animals, I had been thinking about making one and today Tipnut puts out this email. Its Karma!!
    Yours is really cute and can’t wait to make one as soon as I finish the baby blankets (4)I am currently working on. thank you so much for the sharing the pattern and thanks to Tipnut for putting this out for everyone!!

    • Sue says:

      You can make a grocery tote crocheted out of PLASTIC GROCERY Sacks!! I make them by flattening the bag, cutting off the seam at the bottom, then cut across the bag making approx 1″ Strips. These strips then get put together. Roll them into a ball (Like making a rag rug except the ‘rag strips’ are made of the plastic bags.) They’re nearly indestructible, washable and what better way to recycle them?

  3. Emmy says:

    Your bag is just beautiful. I see a lot of crocheted ones and they don’t appeal to me but this one just is just lovely.

  4. Bromeliad says:
