Plarn = Yarn + Plastic!!

A quick post on some of my recent work..

I made this from throw away plastic bags, also known in the crochet world as plarn.. to denote yarn made from plastic.

I must say that it does make a pretty mat that is fairly soft and pliable and washable too.
The possibilities are endless with plarn, and the greatest benefit is the recycling part.. that appeals to me the most.
I simple cut out the strips and rolled them into a ball akin a yarn ball and started crocheting this.
I seem to have collected quite a few bags now.... Hoping to make more ...
