Plarn Purse

Today I was at the IAFE convention in Las Vegas and met Caroline Craig from the Topsfield County Fair, MA. She showed me the most marvelous purse. It's made of plastic shopping bags, but it's not REcycled. It's REused. She formed the bags into yarn... which apparently is called PLARN. Get it? The words Plastic and Yarn are conjugated or contracted or co-joined or something... anyway. She found the pattern on a marvelous web site that shares exactly what you need to know to make these bad boys. is the site. It's full of great info and the best part... it's free. If you're into DIY. Try it. :)
