    Thats great idea. I wondered how one can crochet a laundry basket!

    I never wanted to throw milk packets in dust bin as they were not recycled properly. I wash them stick it above kitchen sink to dry then store and give away only to old newspaper collector.
    This is awesome usage of those. Please let us know how you crocheted. How did you prepare the covers to suit crocheting? That will be of great helpmto many of us. Thanks in advance. If you had followed any links, please provide the link here.

    Regards
    Manjukps

    I've used the 5mm hook...that's the biggest I have, though next bigger size hook also would do.

    here's how to:
    Cut the bag into strips - 1 cm each or 1/2 inch (1 cm would be easy to crochet)
    Cut the bag into strips
    Now knot your strips(loop) together to form a single strand

    This is very good idea as in Dubai we have lots of plastic bags which we can reuse. Thanks for sharing
