I spied this super cool tote at the fairgrounds last week. It was made by a girl named Susan Randall from plastic grocery bags that she had cut into strips and knitted together. It was amazing. I loved it. She had it filled to the brim with homemade jelly that she was entering in the upcoming State Fair of Texas. I bet Susan has a wall covered in rosettes.
It was pretty large and quite sturdy. I'm crazy about the bands of yellow and brown. Don't you enjoy meeting creative, resourceful people like Susan? Every material has possibilities. If you like the whole idea of reusing existing materials, you'll enjoy this little post via A Cup of Jo, about a darling girl who made a neat top from a sheet she found at Goodwill.
