Soooo I have a swap I needed to create something for.... and It's due on the 11th. I decided that I wanted to crochet something, but what?!?
WELLL In an effort to try something new as well as reuse/recycle, I am going to be making a purse made out of recycled plastic bags.
I have not started crocheting yet, HOWEVER I am in the process of making my Plarn (and yes that's the official word for plastic yarn). I am currently using walmart bags. But you can use any kind of plastic bag to make plarn including bread bags... how cool is that?
Anywho, this is the Plarn I am in the process of making:
fisrt you get the bag and then cut the bottom off and the top two handles to get the bag/empty tube below:
Afte you have the ends cut off you cut the bag into strips
Then you link the loops that makes together like you can see below
wrap it up and VOILA! The beginnings of a PLARN ball! :D
