Recycled bags

Here are some of the results from my recycled bags project.
Coin purse made from 3 left over Valentine's Day balloons

A large project tote

A coupon clutch

A large market bag in progress

A started ball of plarn made from old balloon bags.

My inspiration comes from 50% of the sale from each bag will go to Cancer Action They help out people in the area and have a pretty good record of spending donations on programs, not overhead.

If you have any plastic bags of ANY type let me know. If you can't bring them by the store I may be able to arrange to pick them up. I can use shopping bags, bread bags, packaging bags - any plastic bag really.

What an absolutely fabulous idea! Those are way beyond cool! I regret I have no plarn to donate to such a cool cause, but please keep up the good work!

Thanks for the encouragement. If you ever get any plarn making materials, just drop it by. I'm going to set up a drop barrel outside the shop for people who can't make it by when I'm here.

You've got all of our bags. Fantastic. You should sell these next year at T&S.
