You've got to love recycling!

Here's the making of my plarn tote. It will be perfect as a beach tote or for trips to the library!

Plarn= plastic yarn, created by recycling the umpteen million plastic shopping bags from the grocery and wally-world that you probably have stashed behind your fridge or under the sink.

Not a new concept (it's been around a couple of years, and some lovely patterns have been published) but it's new to me!!!!!

It looks and feels much more like straw than plastic. This tote bag pattern courtesy of a crochetville pal, RecycleCindy.

Get this pattern for yourself here at My Recycled

I am about 60 bags into this thing, and need about 30 more to complete. Time to go shopping!
