This is a purse made from newspaper bags. I trimmed it with leftover magenta yarn to keep the strap from stretching too much.
This is a tote bag made entirely from bread bags and other bags that food came in. I crocheted it single ply because this material is thicker than grocery bags.
This is another purse made from newspaper bags. It is 2/3 the size of the purse pattern because it is a gift for my daughter, Elizabeth, on her 9th birthday. :) I have 8 unique colors of newspaper bags. I made balls of plarn with the same sequence of colors. I had to mix them up every now and then to prevent common repeating patterns in the rows.
