Projects of Sarah's Bag Ladies

There are many ways to get involved with the work of Sarah's Bag Ladies (SBL). Below is a list of some of the current ongoing projects in which you can become involved, either by joining us or by doing the work right where you are. 

NOTE: We welcome participation at any level.

 

  • COLLECTING/PREPARING BAGS: at this time, we do not accept unprocessed bags.
    • Those wishing to donate bags are welcome to prepare their bags or to join us at an event where were are processing bags.

    • Click HERE to download printable instructions on how to prepare bags.

    • Click HERE for a video made by UT-Arlington students.

    • NOTE: The minimum processing of a bag is to carefully fold a
      clean, untorn bag lengthwise and cut off the bottom and
      handles. Then it can be folded and placed into a shoebox or
      stacked in another bag to donate to us.  

       

  • CUTTING BAGS INTO LOOPS:
    • After clean and untorn bags have been ​folded lengthwise, cut off the
      bottom and handle and discard.

    • Cut folded bag into 1" strips and set aside.
       

  • CONNECTING LOOPS AND MAKING 'PLARN BALLS':
    • Click HERE to download printable instructions on how to prepare bags.

    • Click HERE for a video made by UT-Arlington students.
       

  • CROCHETING MATS
    • Click HERE for downloadable printable instructions on how to crochet a mat.

    • The basic gist of what we ask is that mat is 3' wide by 6' long with a strap to tie it up.

    • You may use whatever size needle is comfortable for you; our crocheters' preferences range from a "J" hook to a "Q" hook.

    • Feel free to make your mat all one color, rows of color, or multi-colored. 

    • If you need 'plarn' to make mats, let us know! We have plenty.
       

  • TEACHING OTHERS TO CROCHET
    • Do you know how to crochet and have the time and patience to teach others? 

    • We are working to establish "SBL​ Crochet Clubs" on the UT-Arlington Campus
      and at Salvation Army Housing facilities. 

    • CONTACT US if you are interested in helping in this way.
