I’m a guess and check kind of lady, and I learn from my mistakes. I made a prototype plastic bag sandal that turned out super small and trashy. There was no way I could turn in these shoes for a grade. I’m not even going to show a picture of them on this blog post, that’s how messed up and deformed these little shoes turned out. But I’m way better than crappy plastic bag sandals, so I reiterated my design.
I figured out the flaw in my design: 1-ply plastic bag yarn. My plarn was too thin and weak to crochet. I needed something better than flimsy 1-ply garbage. What’s better than 1-ply? 2-ply. Boom. Problem solved. The following images show my new and improved way to make double-bagged plastic yarn.
Step 1: Lay your grocery bag on your coffee table
Step 2: Cut off the top and bottom of the bag
Step 3: Roll up the plastic bag
Step 4: Cut the rolled up bag into 1.5″ sections
Step 5: Unravel the strips and lay one on top of the other
Step 6: Fold bottom strip over the top, then under itself on the right end. Pull taught to link the two.
Step 7: Repeat steps 1-6 a billion times and then roll it all up into a nice ball like the one shown below.
Now it’s time to redeem myself and crochet new sandals.
