This was made to order by Cara, just plain plarn keychain .

My new purse! This handbag is knit entirely out of plastic grocery bags, which means that it's still 100% recyclable.

 

It's slightly larger than my last one: www.flickr.com/photos/trinabrielle/439161252/in/set-72157...

Coin purses made with Boston Globe bags. They are really fun to work with as they come in so many different colors.

Another grocery bag handbag! These bags are made entirely from plastic grocery bags, meaning they're still 100% recyclable.

 

This bag is made from about 25 white Walmart bags (the font on the bag gives the "plarn" its black specks), and 1 orange bag from an unknown source.

1" continuous strips of plarn spun on a handmade drop spindle

little pouch closes with a pair of loops. the long loop slips through the small loop and creates a handle that easily hangs from the wrist, a purse strap or a belt.

I used recycled Hobby Lobby bags for this little tote bag. I really like the colors!

This purse is knit entirely from plastic grocery bags meaning it's still 100% recyclable! It took almost 30 white bags and a small aqua patch from another bag. It's 9" wide, 6.5" tall (without handles), and 2.5" wide.

This trivet is knit from recycled 100% cotton t-shirts, otherwise known as "tarn" (t-shirt yarn)! Just like I do with my plarn (plastic grocery bag yarn) I cut the t-shirts into loops, looped them together, and knit it just like yarn.

This purse is knit from approximately 30 white Walmart bags (the font on the bags create the flecks of black). The red flower is made from part of a holiday Target bag.

Shopping bag.

This is a small plarn handbag, crocheted, with a square reinforced bottom. It will stand alone! Made from Kroger bags including a few of an older vintage--I like the color variation. The dark stripe is a navy shopping bag.

Plarn again!

 

My friend in London is not very good at remembering to take her reusable shoppers to Sainsbury's... hmmmm, I am trying to educate her to do so by giving her more reusable shoppers - and by abducting all her cellophane-plastic-bags collected through the last year.

They are now all cut up and I am in the process of making plarn - plastic yarn. There were about thirty-something bags - I lost count along the line - and the ball of plarn is steadily growing.

 

To be continued!

Another one of my grocery bag handbags! This one is made from about 35 Target bags. The print on the bags is what gives the purse its flecks of red. The 3 lollipop shaped flowers on the front are also knit from Target bags.

 

Because this bag is made entirely from plastic grocery bags, it's still recyclable!

Save the earth and look fashionable doing it!! This clutch is knit completely out of plastic grocery bags meaning it's still 100% recyclable at the end of its lifetime.

 

This trivet is knit from recycled 100% cotton t-shirts, otherwise known as "tarn" (t-shirt yarn)! Just like I do with my plarn (plastic grocery bag yarn) I cut the t-shirts into loops, looped them together, and knit it just like yarn.

My first try at knitting with plastic-bag yarn. It's become a bag for my washpins.

This trivet is knit from recycled 100% cotton t-shirts (otherwise known as "tarn")! Just like with my plarn (plastic grocery bag yarn), I cut the t-shirts into strips, looped them together, and knit is just like normal yarn.

this was a complete accident, but I'm glad it turned out perfect. my hair is such a mess, but it was a humid day.

I love to crochet, and seldom have the time anymore. I never use patterns. I make it up as I go. These flowers were quite challenging.

...continued from last photo

 

I decided to take colored aluminum pull tabs, a blue coat hanger, and some poly cord .....

 

See next photos:

 

Flowers are made from colorful pull tabs (off of aluminum cans), buttons, plastic bags and wire. Stems are coat hangers.

 

Here are the 2 flowers along with a silver one. They are sitting in a crocheted vase I made of Plarn.*

 

* Plarn: Thats when plastic bags are cut up into strips and made into yarn.

Plarn, or "recycled plastic bag yarn".

 

What it looks like.

(I used a small Barnes and Noble bag.)

Danielle shows off the quilt used as the lining in the Eco Margaret Bag. (Thanks Danielle!) The Eco Bags are made from plastic bags and repurposed/donated materials. The name of this bag pays tribute to someone who played a big role in how these bags look by donating a huge amount of awesome fabric! Thanks Margaret!
