Today, many organizations take care of the environment and try to pollute the atmosphere, water and land as little as possible. However, countless retail stores, large and small, sell plastic bags to hundreds or even thousands (depending on volume) of customers every day. And as we know, this material, unlike wood, iron or organic waste, is not recycled by nature either in ten years or in ten centuries.

Already more than 40 countries have introduced bans, restrictions and taxes on the production of plastic bags. Nevertheless, effective methods for regulating the use of polyethylene have not yet been established in Russia. And forgetful buyers, who leave packages purchased the day before at home, increase the average bill of stores by buying new containers. In fact, you need to carry groceries home in something.

But there is one good way to solve this problem - handmade plastic bag bags. After all, most people purchase products of this kind for lack of a more suitable container. Stylish and comfortable handbagsplastic bags will be an excellent alternative to such containers, while contributing to the efficient processing of old material. But how to make such an unusual thing?

The most common way to create a bag from packages is crochet. In order to do the job, you need to have material and some knitting skills. Both of these are not particularly difficult. Bags from plastic bags can be made even with the help of basic single crochets, and at the same time they will not lose their appearance at all. The main thing is the good imagination of the needlewoman, able to design a pretty model.

As for the material for the bag from the bags - then you will be presented with a step-by-step lesson on how to make a kind of "yarn".

So, we need some old bags, preferably plain. This will not be a problem if you regularly purchase packages from the same store, for example, at the nearest grocery store. Straighten the container, carefully fold it, giving it its original appearance. Then fold 4 or 8 times (depending on size and width).

Now cut off the "bottom" of the bag and the handle. Then cut the remaining strip into pieces about 3.5 cm wide.

Now unfold what we have.

It's time to connect our blanks. For this we take two rings. Then we put one on top of the other.


We pass the right tail of the upper ring into the left one, passing it under the bottom blank. Get a sliding loop. We tighten it. Further we work according to the same scheme. As the chain lengthens, wind the "yarn" into a ball.


When it is large enough, you can start knitting. Do not be afraid that the yarn will run out at the most inopportune moment, because if necessary, you can always lengthen the thread.

Thus, after you make yourself enough yarn, knitting a bag from plastic bags will be just a matter of technique. The hook is taken and the process begins.
