First Project finished for 2014
Started this project in December and finished it yesterday. I was inspired to crochet, something I haven't done in years, by Cindy a member of an art group I belong to. She was making beautifully crocheted Christmas gifts. I didn't want to buy any new yarn though. I've seen the projects done using plastic bags and since I've been saving them to donate to our yearly Rummage Sale I decided to use some of them. I think I used at least 8 dozen for this bag. I lost count after awhile. It is definitely tougher to crochet plastic than luscious soft yarns. But it was fun to discover how colorful the printed logos and texts became. I decided to give this shopping bag to my dear artist friend, Sharon, who really dislikes plastic bags as they are deadly to sea life since many bags end up in the waterways and oceans. I think she'll be pleased that at least this many will not be.
