Genevieve over at Sewphisticate has done it again! You might remember her as the gal who made those glorious upcycled shrinky dinks out of plastic cups. Now, she’s working on a basket constructed from crocheted plastic bag yarn, or “plarn.”
Plarn is basically strips of plastic. She cut up strips of plastic bags and combined crochet and basket weaving techniques to make this awesome little basket! Even the row marker and filler cord are made from plastic bags.
She’s been documenting the whole process over on her blog. Check out all of Genevieve’s posts on the plarn basket over here!
