PLASTIC YARN CROCHET
I am currently a little obsessed with up-cycling plastic bags using crochet, so much so that I have now used up all our old plastic bags making wall hangings and baskets. We don't use plastic bags anymore for our grocery shopping so I'm a little torn now, I don't want to use more plastic but I want to do more crochet!
- Plastic bags
- 6mm crochet hook
Begin by cutting up the plastic bag into a long strip of PLARN (plastic yarn). To do this, cut the bottom off the bag making a tube, then starting at the bottom cut one long continuous strip of plastic about 1.5cm wide going around and around your plastic bag tube.
I'm not an expert on crochet so I'm not going to attempt a tutorial here but you can find lots of great crochet tutorials on You Tube.
