So many stores send you out the doors with your latest goods in plastic bags. Often, you have too many bags to be of any practical use, but you don’t know what to do with them. Crochet enthusiasts have come up with a great solution to the surplus plastic bag quandary that creates both practical and beautiful products.
The plastic bags are being turned into something called plarn, with which durable products are crocheted. Plastic Bag Crafts has great written directions that take you through how to fold and cut the bag into strips. The strips are then tied together, creating plarn. For those who are very visual, check out Stephanie Lewis’ step-by-step video below on creating plarn.
