Introduction: Crochet Placemats(reusing Plastic Bags)

About: hmmm, I am originally from Chicago and and currently teaching English in Mexico. I really enjoy teaching and meeting new people. I love learning new things, and since discovering this amazing site I am tryi...

Here is a simple way to reuse plastic bags and turn them into something practical and in my opinion pretty too!
It costs nothing (assuming you own a crochet hook and scissors),
You will need:
*Plastic bags
*scissors
*crochet hook

First you need to cut down the plastic bags into "plarn" plastic yarn, so you can work with it.

Then crochet into whatever design you want, I alternate between colors and it creates a color wheel, the ones I use on my table are all different colors, you could just save up the same type/color of bags and make them the same or create "sets".

If you'd like to learn how to make the "plarn" I will be uploading that shortly.
Thanks for stopping by I hope you enjoyed this quick and easy way to reuse plastic bags that we have too many of!

    Thanks! The bags are from small grocers, like the ethnic food stores.
    I'll load a pic of a target bag, I like the printed bags too because it adds a pattern.

    Pretty! Where did you get the colored plastic bags?
