This blog also qualifies for a "trash" label. However, I am up-cycling here (creating something new with something that might have been thrown away/recycled). I tried a new crochet medium: plarn! It is what it sounds like. It is plastic yarn...made from plastic grocery bags. Yep. I cut plastic grocery bags into strips and crocheted it. I might be a little crazy, but it was fun. The Target bags I used made a nice red and white pattern as I crocheted. I think my festive bells came out well...and just in time to ring in the new year!
While crocheting this bell's top, I ran into a "reuse" that made me chuckle. The bag was not cut with attention to what was printed on it. I had to take a picture!
Happy New Year!
