The creak shopping bag

Facebook group AH Shoptas

There is a Facebook group called AH Shoptas:

Members show their jute bag from Albert Heijn with a crocheted jacket. In the meantime you can see more jute bags with a crocheted jacket. You can see wonderful creations.

As odd as I am, I would like to give a plastic bag a crocheted jacket and also not that size. So I made recycled Action bags. What a fun! I made them with grannies.

I joined the grannies together with the slip stitch join method

For the sides and the bottom I took a stitch and crocheted half trebles over the width of the sides.

Then I took the whole crocheted piece over the bag (a bag in a bag).

The sides, top edge and bottom I sewed with petit points with machine yarn in the color of the acrylic and with an embroidery needle with a sharp point.

The bag is ready now!

Why the name creak shopping bag?

The bag creaks a little. A jute bag doesn’t. That is why I call it the creak shopping bag.

Did you ever crocheted a normal plastic shopping bag?
