Crafty Design Week Five : Plarn

Plastic Yarn: Yarn made from plastic bags. Plastic bags exposed to air and sunshine can take between 10 and 20 years to decompose. That’s why it took over as the material of the future in the 50’s and 60’. There is always a down side however. The horrible bags tend to multiply around my house no matter how hard I try not to bring them home they’re like gremlins. No water needed.

Because plastic is so strong I use it to make something that maybe useful for the next 10 to 20 years like baskets or rugs. Here’s how you can make plarn too.
