Discover how to craft with recycled materials.

plarning plastic bags

 

Plarning is a needlework technique that allows you to create impressive artwork. It’s similar to crochet and knitting; the main difference is in the material that you use for crafting. Plarn stands for “plastic bags yarn.” You can obtain this material by cutting traditional plastic bags in stripes. This supply is recycled, sustainable, and easy to store: you just have to make rolls, as you would do with wool.

For today’s post, we have curated a selection of five impressive tutorials. If you would like to discover the secrets of planning, keep reading! It’s time to learn a sustainable way to use your needlework skills.
