    That is an awesome idea!!! If you do have a pattern, could you email it to me at naz13154@gmail.com? How would it go knitting? I'm a real fan of the garter stitch--love the "nubbies!"

    This is a wonderful idea! I save the ones I bring home that have rips, etc cuz I want to "re-purpose" them always for some...pillow stuffing, etc. But, this is fabulous! I will give this a try, definitely! Brilliant TY :)

    Donna C , I would love to know what happens to the plastic bags in order to crochet with them. Do you cut the bags in to one long plastic strip and how do you connect the bags together? Love your tote, thanks for sharing it with us.
