I finally learned how to make plarn.
That is after I learned what it was.
I was making it before I even knew the word.
Plastic yarn.
I did not know what it was called but as a couple of folks mentioned it in a comment I went straight to Google.
Well now I know.
You can buy it in rolls, or make it yourself with plastic shopping bags.
Now in my opinion buying it ready made is defeating the purpose.
The purpose of recycling.

 My first plarn tote bag.
