In the true recycle fashion, I will not spend any money on my upcycle project. I have a clear idea of what I will make: crocheted plastic bag sandals. I’ve never crocheted anything more than half a scarf, so this project serves as a test of my arts and crafts skills.
Here’s the plan:
- Cut the tops and bottoms off 50 plastic grocery bags (I have hundreds in a box in my kitchen, because I am a horrible Boulder citizen blah blah blah)
- Tie the modified plastic bags into a long continuous rope and roll into a ball…plastic yarn = plarn
- Crochet away! I’ve designed a very simple sandal pattern, similar to what Jesus would have probably worn.
These’s shoes aren’t practical, they’re avant-garde.
