    I've seen this idea before, but have never tried it. I use all my old handle grocery bags for trash, but I've noticed more and more they have little holes in the bottom. Instead of taking them in for recycling I should try this idea. Here's a pattern I found through Googling "crochet grocery bag pattern".... http://www.nancyscrochet.com/GroceryToteBag.pdf

    Wow Donna - you'd sure never know that was plastic bags!! It looks very sturdy and if you spilled something in it or on it - no problem!! Becky I know what you mean about holes in the bottom. I have this little frame thing on my counter by the kitchen sink and I put a bag in it for the cans etc. instead of making numerous trips over to the pantry where the big trash can is. Then I just tie it up after dinner and take it to garage. Anyway, around robin hoods barn, I've noticed more & more that thye majority have holes so I've started doubling up. Too bad I don't crochet!!
