I finished this large shopping bag recently, it's made completely from fused plastic that I patch worked together. I crocheted a trio of plarn (plastic yarn) flowers out of bread bags and sewed them on with some yellow buttons as centers. It seems really strong and joining all the squares together made it really quick to sew. I lost count at how many bags were recycled to make it, but I'm sure it comes with serious eco cred! I think it would be a great farmer's market bag as the plastic is so easy to wipe clean.

  1. Great idea. I love that you even made plastic embellishments from recycled goods. Awesome. I did the plastic fuse thing a couple of years back but was a bit concerned about the fumes emitted when plastic melts. I think its a great way to use up plastic bags and give them a longer life. ;)
