More Eco-friendly purses

Great news, after a somewhat long dry spell, I sold not one, but 2 purses yesterday! Heartfelt thanks to you both!!! One was my hobo purse, just listed the other day and posted here a few days ago.

I'm kind of surprised at how popular my eco-friendly plarn purses have been. For those who don't know, they are crocheted from clean, used plastic grocery bags - (plastic yarn = plarn). I find that more and more people are becoming passionate about recycling, and the many hearts on my plarn purses reflect that.
Here's my latest crocheted plarn purse - a messenger bag with a big funky button, (autumn inspired, and just like a big, round pumpkin). The handle is made from synthetic cording, (Yes, it's not 100% upcycled like my others, but I like to try different things). The strap is long enough for shoulder transport, or across the body, in true messenger fashion.

Stop by my shops for a better look, and have a great weekend!!
