Recycled Paper Bag Tote

Posted on February 18, 2019

A customer asked me if I could crochet her a large plastic bag tote to store her paper for recycling. She wanted a very large tote bag 18 inches wide, with a 7 inches base and 12 inches tall. Of course it had to have handles for carrying and be made from recycled plastic bags. I love a challenge and to crochet such a recycled tote bag was fun.

I used around 90 recycled plastic sacks cut 1 inch wide to complete this recycled paper holding tote. I used the double strand plarn making method to crochet this tote. Here are a few photos of the completed bag.

I am working on the written pattern directions and will have the free crochet plarn pattern posted soon.

Remember this crocheted tote requires at least 90 plastic sacks to make so start saving those bags and get ready for the pattern to be posted shortly.
