Plarn shopping bag-granny squares

My plastic bag collection was taking over our home recently, so I sat down and spent a few hours turning it into a few large balls of plarn. Then it was time to go "Pinterest Shopping" for inspiration as to what to do with these balls.

I found this picture, and decided to use it as a springboard.


Here's how mine turned out:

The pattern I used was pretty basic, just a chain 4, then join into a circle. Next sc 12 in the chain 4 circle, then 20sc, (3 in each corner, 2 on each side) then 28sc. Finish off. 

I made a bunch of the squares, then sl stitched them together, and made a border and a handle.

Now I have a nice bag for my farmer's marketing, general shopping, or just taking things around here and there. What's not to like about that?
