Use Plastic Bags to create a Storage Container

Weave storage bowls out of plastic bags
Create cool storage bowls out of used plastic shopping bags. Cut and weave together with following instructions:

Materials:
1-3 (depends on size and type of bag) plastic bags cut into 2.5cm/ 1inch pieces (Go to www.Nezumiworld.com for instructions on cutting the plastic)
8mm/ L hook

Stitches used/ abbreviations:
ch - chain stitch
dc - double crochet UK / sc-single crochet USA
sl st - slip stitch
st - stitchsts - stitches
rnd - round
beg - beginning

Note:
You may prefer to use a smaller or larger crochet hook. Depending on the brand/ type/ size of plastic bags used, necessary number of bags may vary. You can also use cotton twine, jute, string experiment, torn fabric pieces, twisted paper (good for cheap seedling pots)

Pattern:
Rnd 1: Ch 2, 6 dc (6 sc USA) into 2nd ch from the hook (the 1st ch that was made), join with a sl st to top the 1st dc (sc USA), 1 ch (you should now have 6 sts}

Rnd 2: 2 dc (sc USA) in each dc (sc USA) all around, join with a sl st to top the 1st dc (1st sc USA), 1 ch (you should now have 12 sts}

Rnd 3: *1 dc (1 sc USA) into the next dc (sc USA), 2 dc (2 sc USA) in the next dc (sc USA)** repeat * to ** 5 more times join with a sl st to top the 1st dc (1st sc USA), 1 ch (you should now have 18 sts}

Rnd 4: *1 dc (1 sc USA) into the next 2 dc (2 sc USA), 2 dc (2 sc USA) in the next dc (sc USA)** repeat * to ** 5 more times join with a sl st to top the 1st dc (1st sc USA), 1 ch (you should now have 24 sts}

Rnd 6: 1 dc (1 sc USA) into the next dc (sc USA) to end, join with a sl st to top the 1st dc (1st sc USA), 1 ch

repeat row 6 for 5 more rows or until desired height (for a smaller bowl just skip rnd 5 and go straight to rnd 6)
Weave in all ends to finish.
