This crochet bag is made out of plastic grocery bags! I wish I had kept track of how many bags I put in this, all I can say that there is A LOT! I'm very happy of how this came out especially for being my first up-cycled bag. This was a very time consuming craft! I've been contemplating if I want to put a plastic lining in it or not. I really like the mesh look and feel of how this comes out. Let me know what you all think! Thanks!
