My Recycled Purseability Purse

My Purseability Purse

My blog friend Nan, owner of, created this great purse design and which I finally was able to crochet using her pattern. The purse is crocheted using recycled plastic bags or plarn. In case you are new to the term plarn, here is the link to my picture tutorial on how to create yarn from recycled plastic bags.

Here is Nannybird’s Recycled Purseability Purse Pattern. Nan offers her pattern free for personal use and is very helpful should you have any questions as your crochet this cute purse. While you are over visiting Nannybird’s Blog, I hope you’ll take a moment to checkout all of her recycled bags. She has made purses not only from plastic bags but also from candy wrappers. She has quite an assortment of purses that she has displayed on a cool slideshow at her blog.

Enjoy the remainder of your Labor Day weekend. And to everyone getting ready for back to school or off to college, take care and happy green crafting!

    Thank you Cindy for your kind words and linking to the pattern, I have seen a jump in the blog stats the past few days and then last night I discovered the doll skirt pattern I wrote was also linked to knitting pattern central, imagine my surprise to see between you and that, I have seen a double amount of hits. 😉

    I hope all is going well with the treatments. I’m still keeping you in my prayers. Hugs, Nan

    Wow that’s a really purse. And to think that it’s all made from recycled material is awesome. I’ve heard about people in India and Africa, making their living off of making things purely from recycled material. Anyway Great Blog post! Thanks for being an inspiration for being eco-friendly, and not wasting.
