Recycled Bread Bag Crocheted Library Bag

Back in the day everyone had to have a library bag: if you didn’t have one you couldn’t take books home from my primary school’s library. I recall having a few, but they all had a drawstring and some silly cartoon design on the front.

When I got to Uni however, I found I was in need of a library bag again! One day while I was at my great grandmother’s house we found this:

Recycled Bread Bag Library Book Bag

How awesome! I declared. She said I could have it. She had made it from the plastic bags you get when you buy bread from the supermarket. This fascinated me, as I couldn’t for the life of me figure out how that would work.

Flash forward about 10 years and I have the bright idea to search the Internet on how she may have done it and, well, that’s a post for another day!

Hehe 😀

  1. Hi Morgan, I love the library bag. It’s a novel idea and very precious since your grnny made it. I forgot about the different types of bread wrappers we had when we were younger. I can’t wait for the follow up post. The trick will be in stringing the pieces together to make the plastic thread.

    1. I’ve seen a tutorial online for making plastic bag yarn, its very simple but repetitive and time consuming. I’ll make mine with the grocery bags I posted earlier, we don’t eat enough bread to save enough bags!
