Recycled plastic bag

I used 1 plastic bag to make this flower headband.





I crocheted it with one of my biggest crochet hooks and finished it off by sewing on a thin stretchable band at the back and voilá! I give you my latest creative work. I think it turned out pretty great so I'm in the midst of making another one in between making some orders. This is a great way of getting rid of old plastic bags, I know I have to many so this is PERFECT. Imagine making your own plastic rug, like those from the 70's. It's possible as I have that many bags....

Absolutely perfect!!!
This is so great!
Wish I could help you collect more plastic bags for a rug! You could make something so beautiful out of it!

Thanks glammie ( är det ok att kalla dig det, det är kortare och så är du rätt glamourös och glammig :) )

Thank you Galit! I'm trying to get rid of my plastic bags without throwing them away, and I try to remember to take the cotton fabric bag to the grocery shop instead. Feels better :) That rug is a future project I guess...
