PLARN! Crochet with Plastic Bag Yarn!
Sunday, December 15; 1-5 PM
Come learn how to turn trash to treasure as we make “yarn” from plastic grocery bags then turn that into a stylish and functional tote bag!
You’ll need to bring as many plastic grocery store bags as you can round up for repurposing, a good pair of scissors, and a size 6 mm crochet hook. The completed bag will require approximately 100-150 bags, depending on size. You will start in class, then receive instruction on how to finish at home, so you don’t need 100 bags to start.
