Lately I have been knitting and crocheting some market bags. The type you use to replace the plastic grocery bags that they put your groceries in. I love this idea as there are way too many of these plastic bags ending up in our land fill’s.
You can read a great article on this at Sack the Plastic Bag. I want to do my part to be eco-friendly and green!
First I crocheted these two, one in a lime green and one in navy blue.
You can find that pattern here:
I really liked using this Hilo La Espiga 100% nylon thread for these market bags.
The next was a knitted one called Fantasy Naturale Market Bag
I loved the color and I’m giving this one to my daughter to use as a beach bag.
The last one is also knitted and it’s called Everlasting Bagstopper. I really enjoyed the knitting pattern on this one and found it the most fun to make. Here are some photo’s of it.
Sunday a week ago me and my friend Aura got together to crochet and knit at Caribou Coffee. Here she is with her finished Crochet Market Bag. She has since finished a blue one using the nylon thread as well. These bags are very addictive and a nice quick project for fast gratification.
Now I have set my sights on a new one… Sunflower Shopping Bag!
