I am looking for crochet craft patterns using plastic bags.
By padufresne from Sault Saint Marie, Canada
I have made a couple of door rugs for muddy boots by using bags--I just cut them into 2-3 inch strips and use a large needle. One I made by just crocheting a large circle, the other a large granny square. I used no patterns.
I offer all my patterns free at my blog site of http://www.myrecycledbags.com from plarn (plastic bag yarn) patterns, fabric projects, crochet ideas and more. If you want just goggle my recycled bags and you can find me too.

Sorry to bother you so soon, but I am looking for instructions for crocheting with newspaper bags. Can you help? Thank you.
I take all kinds of plastic bags, strip them in 1/2 inch strips and make costers out of them and small rugs in front of sink and in bathroom They are real pretty when finished. You can use the ones from the store, some have red print some blue print and some bags are yellow. You can mix and match them and have a colorful rug. Also use bags from papers and bread wrappers. Crochet them. Just start with either round center or oblong center just depends on what you like. Use a single stitch and add stitches as needed. (05/28/2009)
