The listing, Recycled Plastic (Plarn) Grocery Tote Crocheted has ended.

I make these with plarn, which is grocery bags made into balls of 1 inch strips like yarn. They are recycled, and I sell these on other sites they sell well I get $25 for them, but I am offering one here for ink. The center is open weave to stretch well for groceries, the bottom is single stitch a tight weave so groceries dont fall out. I guess you could use it for a purse, or beach tote, they are water proof. I use my own personal ones for groceries, and they do take awhile to make mostly because the bags I had saved up for them. Free shipping

They are so easy to make and no having to purchase yarn, because its all recycled. If you can crochet you can make them. I am working on a bean bag type chair, I just have to wait till I get more of the color I want to finish it. I first seen it when they started making sleeping mats and pillows for the homeless, and started saving the bags since.

Thank you, they are really easy to make, no buying yarn, water proof so great at the beach or carrying things that might get wet. Just rinse and hang dry them. The longest part is making the plarn. I am all about recycling, I even make lanterns with cans :)

How much weight do the hold? Are they sturdy ? How may bags makes one bag?

I never counted each bag that gets crochet into one, I made different sizes and colors, and this can hold many canned stuff which is heavy.

Nicie job!!! Working with the plastic is not easy so is worth every penny you make from it. I see a pattern here -
Nov 13th, 2019 at 4:24:42 AM PST by
I have a similar one made to that pattern and I cut the strips the same way, however; it is really difficult doing the plastic with that size crochet needle like the link you sent. It is easier if you use a large one size 10-13 and even better if you use a plastic one. Hope that helps :)
