Recycle your plastic bags
« on: April 23, 2012, 09:58:37 am »
I have attached a knitting pattern for a tote bag made from old plastic bags. 

Looks fun to make and good for those of you into recycling.

It looks good  :thumbsup:   You would have to tailor your shopping preferences to buy in shops which have interesting-coloured plastic bags  :D   You can also make proddy rugs with plastic bags.

What's a proddy bag?

a proddy rug - it's a rag rug, made by prodding bits of recycled clothes into a hessian backing.....but you could alternatively do one with plastic bags using the latch tool usually used for cut wool rugs I suppose.   I'm not sure what a rug of plastic bags would feel like underfoot.
