Seriously? I didn't know people did this. Have you seen instructions for this?

Crocheting rugs from plastic bags is a great way to recycle those grocery store bags!
Check out the link for �Crochet Pattern Central� listed under �Free Patterns� in the Rugmaking Website.
I�d love to hear back to see how your project is going.

I�m about � way done crocheting a plastic bag rug using shopping bags from the grocery store. I used the instructions for making plastic bag yarn from Crochet Pattern Central (see Free Patterns in the Rugmaking Site). I am not an expert at crocheting, so I just made a chain and started double crocheting with a large crochet hook. The rug is very soft and has a lot of cushion. I�m thinking about folding it in � and using it as a kneeling pad in my garden.
