~ Preparing Plastic Bags for Crocheting ~

Preparing plastic bags is pretty simple.

Start with a plastic bag.

Fold it in half.

Fold it in half several more times.

Cut the handles off.

Cut the bottom off.

Cut the bag into about one-inch strips.

You should end up with about 10 pieces per bag.

Unfold 2 pieces and loop them together.

Loop all the bag pieces together to form a chain.

Roll the plastic bag chain into a ball.

I typically wait until I have a lot of bags. Then I cut them all up and end up with a crazy mess like this. Then I roll this mess into several large balls.
