FO: Plarn Bag
A plarn bag made from recycled plastic bags was my Earthday project. I just made up a pattern. It was to imperfect to give away but will make a nice beach bag for me.

pretty much like the link Amy gave, although I folded my bags and didn't roll them but same difference. Google Plarn and you'll find ideas and patterns too.

I think that your bag turned out great...just wonder how hard the plastic is to knit with? I want to try this, as I have a huge collection of plastic bags.

This is REALLY neat! I will have to give this a go once I finish Finals and some projects I've been working on. What to make, what to make....
