Fabrics can be made with many materials besides wool and threads. In this article we´ll see how to make a wonderful shopping bag using recyclable materials. in addition to get a nice result, you´ll be doing something environmentally friendly.
To make this shopping bag, you only need a hook crochet, plastic bags, tape or glue and a pair of scissors.
The first step to make this shopping bag is to fold the plastic bag into a rectangular shape. Then, cut small rectangles from the bag, approximately 2.5 centimeters wide, as seen in the image.
The next step is to attach the strips with tape or glue, it may take a little bit of time, but with help you´ll finish quickly.
If you want to skip this step, you can fold the bag into a rectangle but leave a bit unfolded.
Then, when you are cutting the strips, don´t cut completely, stop before the piece you left unfolded.
Next, stretch the bag where you left the uncut space, make diagonal cuts and you´ll have only one very, very long strip.
Now you can make your ball of recycled plastic yarn.
To start knitting, make a chain as long as you want, depending on the length of the chain it will be the size of the bottom of your bag. When you have the defined size, start making half stitches, double stitches or whatever stitch you want to use.
Having chosen the model you want, you must sew in round until you have the size you want and finally knit the handles.
The result is very practical and beautiful. You can mix the colors you want.
