How To: Create Yarn From Plastic Bags

How To: Create Yarn From Plastic Bags

We keep a small supply of plastic bags on hand for kitty litter detail when our compostable bags run out. We try not to use plastic bags for anything else but we're really liking Helle's idea for reusing them to make yarn...

You'll have to check out Helle's entire line of sculptures made from plastic bags here. And while we don't consider ourselves creative or crafty enough to attempt our own sculpture, we do know how to knit and crochet. Helle shows us her nifty padded hanger made from colorful plastic bags--but the sky's the limit when it comes to making your own creation. We've included captions for this how-to so make sure to click through the photos to learn Helle's crafty technique.
