Crocheted Pink and Grey Plarn Sandals

July 1, 2014 3 comments

Here is my finished pair of pink and grey crocheted plarn sandals that I have been working on for months. This truly has been a labor of love and recycled craft challenge to get these completed. I posted my progress with this plastic bag project over the last several months. I crocheted the plarn sandal soles and improved on the pattern I used in the past for making recycled plastic sandal slippers.

I present the free crochet pattern for these recycled plastic sandals below. These can be used at the beach, around the house and garden, or even as shower sandals for college students. For larger or smaller sizes, just add more or reduce the stitches to your beginning chain and crochet the tops wider too as needed.

This is part 2 of my crocheted plastic bag sandal soles. I finally got the two sole pieces crocheted together and here is the progress photo.

Here is a closeup of the toe end and then one of the heel.

One final thing to share.

Crocheting Plarn Sandal Soles

May 15, 2014 9 comments

I am working on a new pair of crocheted plarn sandals. You may recall my first pair of recycled plastic bag sandals I crocheted. This new project is using grey recycled plastic retail bags cut 1 inch wide and assembled using the using the knot and inter-loop plarn-making method.

I am happy to share this photo of the finished crocheted soles for the sandals. It’s been a real trial and error for these soles as I wanted to improve on my original pattern. You may notice that there are two darker grey soles and two lighter ones. I didn’t have enough of one color to complete all four soles. I plan to put two sole pieces together to create one reinforced sole for each sandal. Now that I have the soles done, I can now continue working on the crochet pattern that I will eventually share here on my blog.

Recycled Plastic Bag Sandals

Here is the long awaited recycled plastic bag sandals. Many people have been asking for just such a pattern and with the help of another recycled crafter Tera, I was able to finish up this sandal pattern. Tera’s original design has a back strap and I’m still working on that version. I will be adding that option later on another pair of sandals that I will crochet in a smaller size so that I will a few different sizes in this sandal project.

This version of the recycled sandals could also be used as an indoor/outdoor type slipper. I like it because I can just slip it on and go. Kinda like flip flops but I can still wear my socks too.

As always I hope you enjoy the free crochet pattern and happy crocheting to all!
