This tote is made with plastic grocery bags you get from the grocery store. I made it for my daughter to take to and from the pool when she starts her school swimming lessons next month. It has a flat weaved bottom and a braided tie at the top. It was made on the yellow KK loom with 41 pegs. I'm surprised at the strength!
Ready, set, go!
Cut handles and bottoms off of about 10 bags. Open bags and lay flat.
Cut bags into 2 inch strips.
My ball of "yarn."
You will not use the ball of yarn for the bottom, only for the ewrapping, set it aside. Use a single strip across the bottom of the loom and a double strip for the actual weaving. To join the strips I used scotch tape neatly hidden inside the strip. To view instructions on flat weaved bottom bags click here for my previous post.
