A Whole lot of Recycling :: 68 bags

3 Oct

The final count.

Wow, this bag has taken shape and character.

I made a shoulder strap for this purse to complete it. It is light yellow in the center—I crocheted 75 chain stitches to start the handle. Then I added to each side with more yellow, and edged it with orange. Down the center I crocheted another chain of a darker yellow to fill in the “holes” left from crocheting on both sides. The strap/handle took 10 bags to complete.

The final count is in and now we all know—it takes an average of 68 grocery size bags to make a large shoulder strap purse with a pocket inside!

Anyone interested in purchasing this great bag can contact me at bags2bags.repurse (at) gmail (dot) com. The dimensions are 13.5″ wide x 10.5″ high. It has a shoulder strap that is 2″ wide and 31″ long and a pocket inside measuring 7″ wide and 4″ deep.
