Remade: ‘Plarn’

‘Plarn’ is my term of the week. Plastic-yarn, formed from past it shopping bags can be knitted up like any other yarn.

At this week’s Remade class we will be making plarn to knit or crochet into useful new objects.

There are many opportunities to make things with plarn, such as soap dishes, placemats, clothes peg bags etc. I actually got a bit excited and got a headstart making a recyclable shopping bag, which’ll hopefully be strong enough to be reused for a lot longer than the sum of its parts.
