All those heaps of plastic bags that you can’t recycle just got a new purpose. Yarn made from plastic bags makes a very sturdy, easy-care, washable, durable, and useful-RUG!
To help put a stop to the tremendous amount of plastic grocery bags from entering landfills, this repurposed and #ReFab project is just what the planet ordered. It is so satisfying to turn plastic bags into art instead. Also, the materials are free and readily available. You will need quite a stash of bags for a large rug. Be careful how many people you ask for bags-we ALL want to find a purpose for them-and you just may be inundated!!
Using basic crochet stitches, we will use a single crochet stitch, concentrating on making a rectangular rug, that you can continue to add to, as you get more bags. The sturdy plarn can also be used to make placemats, market bags and coasters, once you understand the basic concept.
