Mini Plarn Shoulder Bag Purse

Posted on December 5, 2020

Got plastic bags? Want to make a cute little shoulder bag? Well grab your crochet hook and those bags and lets crochet a mini shoulder bag purse out of those plastic sacks.
Plarn Mini Shoulder Bag Purse

This recycled crafting project used about 15 brown Safeway retail sacks, cut 1 inch wide and assembled using the looping method to create plarn. The finished purse measures 6.5 inches wide by 5 inches tall with a 36 inch long strap. The strap can be knotted as shown for a shorter strap or kept longer for wearing across the body.

Here is free mini shoulder bag pattern. This recycled bag pattern dates back to 2008 just a year after this blog was started. I hope you enjoy this recycled bag project and the purse that it creates.
