    Coiled Basket Tutorial: Repurpose plastic bags into a coiled basket (sewn technique) with braided handles. This could be great for picking berries, as an Easter basket, or for organizing things around the house. Tutorial by The Lucky Ladybird on Lucky Ladybird Craft blog (27 Mar. 2009), inspired by Michelle Verges of http://conserveplasticbags.blogspot.com/2007/02/coiled-basket-weave.html (also posts on 28 & 18 Feb. 2007). #reuse #green

Yes! We used to make these every year in grade school for Easter baskets out of colored paper! I have often tried to remember how it was done! Using grocery bags is a really nice idea.

Plastic bag's basket; make braids and sew them together. Nice!

crocheted plarn bag by Thoughtful Rose, she used 1" loops of plarn, and a size H crochet hook. Tight, dense stitches are the key to a plarn bag that won't stretch out of shape (that, and crocheting through both loops).

Bread bags made into rugs or I could see using them to line the nest boxes instead of straw. Easy to clean just hose off

These are great. For extra pzazz collect the colored bags from retail shops also. I will ask for a second bag if I really like the color. They are usually much thicker so you will want to make the strips a bit more narrow.
