Anyway....you can see where I'm going .... recycled carrier bags made from what is known in craft circles as 'plarn' (plastic yarn)! Cut up and crocheted, in this case, in fur stitch - looks just like grass - and decorated with a couple of little flowers and a butterfly. Turned out rather kitsch, in fact perfect for plastic!
