Don't Throw That Bag Away!

Craft it instead.

I am so amazed at the wonderful craft projects people have been making out of plastic grocery bags. There are tutorials popping up all over the place on how to make reusable shopping bags out of ordinary plastic shopping bags.

Check out this awesome Crocheted Purse made of recycled plastic grocery bags. What a fun craft idea.

Here is a cool video that shows how to fuse the bags together and forming them into a nifty messenger bag.

After seeing that video I wonder what else would be possible. Wouldn't it be cool to make a rain coat out of plastic bags? Or maybe knit a plastic bag sweater. It'll be fun to keep an eye on this trend to see what other creative ideas crafters come up with for using plastic grocery bags.
