After making the loops and looping them together, I roll the "yarn" into a ball.

This is the thing that takes the longest to do.

After preparing yarn. I just crocheted a bag.

I started with the bottom and crocheted a rectangle (using double crochet and a G or H hook) After I liked the size of the bottom, I single crocheted one row around and then used the back loops and started the sides going round and round and joining at the start of each row.

I have been having fun with colors. I have made one with black trim, and a big yellow stripe. This one pictured was made from white, brown, beige and green bags that came from Cabela's Outdoor store.

(we had gone to the store and on the way back I gasped and my husband nearly drove off the road wondering what was wrong, I shrieked "the bags are GREEN!" he then figured that I was thinking of making a new bag) too funny.

Now your bag can have an oval bottom, could have a flap or button hook, you could line it. You could add design or used a combination of single crochet and double crochet to make the stripes different widths. The ideas are endless.

Hope some of you try this project and have some fun.
