Plastic Bag Re-use

This Lidan-inspired basket was crocheted entirely from plastic bags. The continuous strand was created using the technique shown here.

Plastic bag crocheting is becoming increasingly popular and is a great and easy way to recycle.

Whats up are using WordPress for your blog platform? I’m new to the blog world but I’m trying to get started and create my own. Do you require any html coding knowledge to make your own blog? Any help would be really appreciated!

If anyone desires to try this l reccomended two things , a steel hook, they do make steel ones of regular sizes, and talcum powder to wipe the hook with from time to time. Prevents friction since your working with a type of plastic. And a pair of school scissors to cut the bags with ,unless you can rotary cut them.

I work better with bamboo hooks actually. Plastic tends to stick to steel hooks.

I’ve made quite a few of these. Here is my current one I’m using now for my crafts.
