Instructions for making the plastic bag "yarn"

"Green Crafts" is a great way to reuse & recycle.

Make your own "yarn" for crochet projects from Plastic Grocery Bags. We will be posting some great patterns to use your "yarn" during the next few days, so come back & check out these patterns.

Lay the bag flat

Cut the handles and bottom seam off the bag

Fold the bag into a strip

Cut the bag into 1 1/2 - 2 inch pieces

connecting the rings place - one ring over the other

Take one end of the white bag and insert it into the other end

Pull tightly but not to tight or it will tear, this forms a knot which will not be seen when you crochet. Keep repeating the above and roll up your strips into your new ball of "yarn"
