    Just created this basket (7'' in height and roundness) from plastic bags by doing double crochet. The plastic bags are 40 microns thick in my city so it's very nice for plarn crocheting.

    Very nice and neat work and a great way to use the plastic, probably you can use first grade plastic or the eco-friendly plastic. Thanks for sharing this with us.

    These are like transparent bags that a supermarket here is providing from their vegetable section, I thought of collecting it, even If I had to wash the dirty bags, thought of recycling plastic bags instead of throwing it. Sometimes we thought of disposing dirty plastic bags but we can just simply rinse it and reuse it. A simple way of helping the environment.
    And the edging on top of this plarn basket is done from milk packets bags. I also wash and keep the milk packet bags and recycle it for crocheting. I'll be posting one basket made of milk bags soon.

    good work meja. You have lot of patience in preserving, cutting strips and using them for your work.
