We’ve all seen plarn, right? The plastic bags cut into strips (plastic yarn) and crocheted into rugs and totebags. There are some good crocheters out there cutting away on their huge stash of plastic shopping bags to save the world and make something for nothing. Good idea.
But, this gal has a GREAT IDEA and the artistry to back it up!
Not only are her plarn backpacks attractive, she’s making it her business to teach the world how to use their plastic bags to create these virtually indestructible backpacks and totes from materials that are, sadly, abundant even in the third world.
Right now, she’s touring India, teaching people how to create and crochet with plarn. Check out her blog for all the details. And, when you check out the pictures of her projects, be sure to scroll ALL the way down to see the cool plastic skirt someone made! Visit Cristen here
