How-To: Plastic Bag Crochet

Home Yarncraft

Cz Upcraft

Research suggests that 500 billion to 1 trillion plastic bags are consumed worldwide each year. The city of San Francisco has banned plastic bags in large markets and pharmacies for a few years now. Most of the time I carry my foldable tote in my handbag so I usually never have to have a plastic bag in my hand. But what about the plastic bags you may have lying around in a drawer or garage?
Back at Maker Faire Austin back in the fall of 2007, I had a chance to film Cristen Andrews from for a CRAFT Video where she showed me all the fun things she made from crocheting plastic bags, how to create the plastic bag yarn, and how to start crocheting.
Here’s her tutorial with step-by-step photos on how to create your plastic bag yarn.
