Upcycling Plastic Bags: Plarn

What a wonderful idea to reuse and reduce the plastic bags going into our landfills.  Here is my tutorial on making plarn:
 Take a clean plastic bag.  Lay it flat
Fold it in half


 Fold it in half again
 Cut the bottom off.  Put that in your bag to make kitty toys with.
 Cut the handle off.  Put that in your bag to make kitty toys
Cut your bag evenly to make complete circles
Pull the circles together to form and length of plarn.  Crochet and/or knit as you desire.  Great for area rugs, soda can cozies, coasters....let your mind go wild.....
