Plastic Bag Tote

Plastic Bag Tote

At Marlo’s Crochet Corner I eventually found instructions on how to cut a plastic bag to get the ‘yarn’ for crocheting and/or knitting. She also provides an instruction on how to crochet a tote.
Once I crocheted a purse with such yarn and it worked very well, but as always I didn’t take any photo ;-(
The purse was quite stiff (which I find appropriate for a purse ;-)).
I think about making plastic yarn (plarn) and working freeform with it, but I still have no idea what to make, because items knitted of crocheted with plastic bag yarn tend to get big.

Crocheted Paisleys

Crocheted Paisleys

Yesterday I presented a tutorial on Bead embroidered Paisleys. If you like Paisleys too but look for another technique to create them try Crocheted Paisleys Crocheted Paisleys.
One day I will make a shawl by crocheting lots and lots of those Paisleys and sewing them together!

Bead Crochet

I showed before a tutorial on crocheting bead ropes. These bead crochet instructions are different: this time you crochet something like a completely beaded fabric which you can use further for your projects. Use it e.g. for little purses.
