Good Evening

Recently I read about plarn (plastic yarn).  http://www.myrecycledbags.com/2007/02/17/instructions-for-cutting-plastic-bags-creating-recycled-plastic-yarn/  So I decided to make myself a shopping bag out of all the free plastic bags I have.  I do try to take reusable bags so its taken a while to get some.  Anyway, I cut the bags up and joined them together with my daughters help to make my first ball of plarn.  I think I will be needing many more as I want a big bag with long straps to put over my shoulder so I can carry more.  My husband thinks I am completely mad making 1 bag from lots of bags.......

My Plarn

I also decided to make an ear warmer as I found that unless I wear my hat my ears get cold on the school run.

And here I am wearing it for this mornings school run and I am pleased to say it worked very well.

 I really like these so made 2 more that I may sell. 

I am currently working on another green sparkly one for my daughter.

Back soon
