Just finished my new plastic shopping bag made from old plastic shopping bags! I recently posted a project on my website (Home-Dzine.co.za) using my DIY super-large crochet hook and the whole idea behind designing the hook was to be able to make a shopping bag with plastic bags. Well, it's done and it only took me 3 days of occasional crochet in front of the TV to finish it.
Step 1: Cut your bag
Gather together all your plastic bags as you will need about 70 to make a shopping bag. Fold each bag over and cut off the top and tail and then cut into 3cm-wide strips.
