Brown & Blue Plarn Bag

As part of a trade, I made this brown and blue plarn bag for someone.  In exchange I got several skeins of cotton yarn.  It has taken me a month to make it only because I could not get enough brown plastic bags to finish it (especially since I shop with reusable bags).

I love it.  If it wasn't specifically made for someone else, I would keep it.  I love the color combination and the size of it.  I hope that the other person loves it to.


  1. I love how eco-friendly this project is :)
    LOL at "plarn". As an uncrafty person, this is the 1st time I've heard the term.

  2. Thanks :) It took a lot of plastic bags to make it. The terms are a bit funny. Like tarn is t-shirt yarn, jarn is jean yarn, and sharn is sheet yarn.

  3. I think it came out beautiful!!!

  4. That's awesome - I have one of these on my to-do list, but yours turned out gorgeous. I just finished a bag from recycled bird seed bags if you want to check it out...

  5. Oh, how wonderful!
    This is so cute!
    Thank you for sharing!
    Have a good day!

  6. Love it! I have that same pattern and have one about half way done...waiting for the right colors!
