14 Years Ago

Posted on January 24, 2021

Well it all started 14 years ago today here at My Recycled Bags. I posted my first post January 24, 2007. I kicked off this blog by writing about recycling plastic bags and how you could create useful homemade items from the bags.

14-Year Anniversary My Recycled Bags

Of course I branched out over the years and have written about recycling and crafting with all kinds of materials as well as about my personal battle with breast cancer. Thankfully so far, I have beaten cancer and kept this blog site going for 14 great years now.

I have crocheted, sewn, and woven all kinds of things here at My Recycled Bags. I have posted and shared 100’s of free patterns and ideas from tote bags, rugs, baby bibs, dishcloths, hats, scarves, to doll clothes and bears. There is probably something for everyone at my free pattern page.

Anyway on this 14-year anniversary of my blog, I just want to thank everyone who has supported me and the site all these years. While I don’t post as often as I used to, I am still here and check all emails and comments daily. So keep reading and visiting My Recycled Bags and I will keep this blog going hopefully for many more years.

    I became a Plarn crochet person thanks to you and your site in 2010 when I was diagnosed with Crohn’s and had to quit my job. Made all sorts of bottle cozies, bags, hats ,mats for homeless for my friends church. Thank you.
