Do you revel in crocheting? Are you a frugal crafter? If so, I actually have a superb frugal craft undertaking for you these days that might not fee you a cent! This specific craft mission is made from plarn! Not sure what plan is? Well, I am going to inform you approximately it.
Plarn is the slang term given to ‘yarn’ that has been made from plastic grocery bags…, those plastic bags that grocery and retail stores use to p.C. Your purchases in. Instead of throwing them away and junking up our landfills, you may flip the ones plastic luggage into a plane.
To make the following projects, you may want a size H crochet hook (for the beach mat) and a length G crochet hook for the tote bag and eight-10 plastic shopping luggage.
How To Make The Plan: You will want to apply clean plastic bags. Cut off the handles and flatten the bag flat. Cut off the seaming at the bottom. Now…Cutting thru each layer of the bag, reduce strips which can be a half of” huge. Once you have got your strips, you may need to loop them collectively to shape a continuous long strand. Once it’s far lengthy sufficient, roll right into a ball. You can find YouTube.Com video’s and tutorial web websites online to train you how to make plarn if you want a visual demonstration.

You will want to chain forty-four stitches, single crochet inside the second chain from the hook and in every chain across. Chain 1, turn and unmarried crochet in every stitch throughout. You will maintain this pattern until you’ve got 11 rows. Fasten off and weave to your ends.
To Make The Tote Bag:
This tote bag is made by way of crocheting five square blocks and then absolutely slant stitching all of the rectangles together to make the tote bag. I made the tote bag large than a handbag because I desired it to preserve the fashion doll’s plastic suntan lotion bottle, her towel, hat, sunglasses, and many others. You know…All of those little fun add-ons that the one’s dolls come with.
