Crochet Plastic Bag Door Mat




I'm crocheting a door mat out of plastic bags. I cut 2 inch strips and tie them together, leaving about a 2-3 inch tail. I use a J hook and chain the width, then double crochet in each chain, chain three and turn. I crochet each row the same until I have my length. I pull all tails to one side of the mat. That way it has a shag look to it and the other side is flat. When it gets dirty, you can wash it by just spraying it with water.

This is the type of doormat that is good for a bi-fold door, I have found this http://caldwells.com/exterior-doors/contemporary-d == oors which I think that matches the door mat.. Anyway, is this one not a type of mat that easily loose its fiber?

I just cleaned up yesterday and got rid of a pile of plastic bags. Wish I'd read this first. (I'm going to go check my garbage bag as I may just be able to save them!)

Hi, Crocheting with bags bring back good memories. My grandmother taught me how to chrochet with bags when I was about 9. We made table mats for my mom all with different clour bags. when dirty just soak in luke warm water and they're as good as new. Enjoy this lovely creativity ! Estelle

Any of you still have your VCR tapes. This I am sure would work just as nice, you just would not get colorful ones. They are a shimmering black.
