Come Learn and Share Information about Recycling, Crocheting & Recycled Crafting

8 years and Still Going

Posted on January 18, 2015

8 years ago on January 24, I posted my first blog post here at My Recycled Bags. Since 2007 I have shared and added over a hundred different recycled and crocheted patterns. I have battled and so far beaten cancer and posted over 400 blog posts. Through it all, I have meet and become friends with many wonderful people on-line.

I just want to take this opportunity to thank all my friends, family and on-line acquaintances. The last 8 years has been fun and very rewarding. As you may know, I love to crochet and make things from recycled materials. Over the years I’ve created things from plastic bags, denim, t-shirts, VCR tapes, cassette tapes, old clothing, and other recycled materials. I share all my patterns free to everyone from plarn to denim on my patterns page where I have all the projects shown with thumbnails.

I hope you have found this blog site useful and have enjoyed reading it as much as I have sharing projects, ideas and thoughts over the years. I love to hear from my readers so if you have a moment, drop me a comment or email.

Best wishes to all and as always happy crocheting and crafting to all!

    I rarely post here, but I am a faithful follower. I didn’t realize you had beaten breast cancer. My sister and 2 sisters-in-law have also beaten it. Maybe eventually we will stop it.
    I enjoy your patterns so I hope you will continue.

  15. This scarf is so great! We are trying to have our Farmers Market go plastic bag free this season. If we can’t convince our vendors and customers, we’ll just have to send them here to your plarn pattern section! Keep up the great upcycling.
