Recycled Ripple Purse

February 24, 2008 16 comments

Check out my recycled plastic ripple purse! I have had a ripple purse on my to-do list for quite awhile. I am happy to report that it’s finally completed and here is the result. This Chevron pattern is a bit more difficult when you are using recycled plastic bags. I crocheted the recycled grocery bags together and lined my purse when finished. If you are new to crocheting with plastic bags, here is the picture tutorial to help you.

Here is a picture of the inside lining.

I hope you enjoy this recycled plastic bag pattern and as always happy green crafting to you!
