Plarn Purses

Last summer, in Kansas for a Tompkins family reunion, we went to church at the St. John United Methodist Church. That's where I was baptized as a baby! Somehow we met a woman who had a crocheted purse made out of plastic "WalMart" bags. It was too too cute. She gave us a little lesson after church on how to make one. She so enjoyed our time together that she came to the reunion to show us some of her other bags.

I began making my first bag (the one on the right) as soon as I got home. The one on the left is my second creation and the one in the middle is a Trick-or-Treat bag for Owen. If he doesn't want to use it, then I will put my treats in it to give out to the little goblins. Any suggestions for my next project?

I love your plarn bag creations! Isn't is wonderful creating such a cool and useful thing from trash? Best wishes and if you need any patterns, stop by for a visit.

Very cool bags! I left a comment but didn't fill out a user name or anything so I don't know if it "took". Very cool rain hat too!. Nice that you could think of doing something productive in the awful traffic rather than just getting frustrated and angry.
