Imagine my delight when my local grocery store temporarily switched from yellow plastic grocery bags to purple plastic grocery bags.......pure heaven as it were for a dedicated recycling crafter like me, right? I was actually swooning I believe, or maybe that was on account of the mesh potato sacks that instead of their standard white became orange, right around the same time!
If you live in an area where plastic bags do exist (unlike many of my readers from California) and if you have not made plarn, namely plastic bag yarn, then you are surely missing out, as it is so much fun!
One of my favorite things to do with plastic bag yarn is to make plastic bag pom poms to use as gift toppers and so much more. They really are fantastic!
And once upon a time I also crocheted with plastic bags (below) which was also so much fun! I've got to get back to some more plastic bag crocheting, maybe with these purple balls.......
Ah yes, and I completely forgot about this crocheted plastic bag doily clock, whaddya know?
So dear readers, take a look at my how to make plastic bag yarn tutorial, collect your bags in a variety of fun colors and get to work. Come to think of it, the kids could use the balls for finger knitting possibly or even weaving!
