Crocheting with Plastic Bags

Today in the Etsy blog I ran across a link to a post on the readymade blog about using plastic bags to crochet a NEW bag. It’s actually a very cool idea and there are patterns to use too, but mostly this post brought up a nice memory. A number of years ago when John and I went to Oregon for a quick vacation, we stayed at a place called the SeaDreamer Inn in Brookings-Harbor. Penny, the proprietess, was also taking care of her great aunt, who was, apparently, ahead of this bag-crocheting trend. She would take colored plastic bags and crochet them into neat little oval placemats; she gave us about five of them when we left. I think I still have a few here and there – they’re almost indestructible. Except not very good for hot pans – LOL.
