A group of crafters were chatting about PLARN, and I decided to show them the sweet hand crafted doll crocheted from plastic bags..NOT made by me, but someone in Benin, Africa. She is only 4 inches tall not including the hanging loop. I adore her.
I bought this at Ten Thousand Villages--which is really a great organization helping to sell world wide arts and crafts through "fair trade" practices.
Creating PLARN and crocheting plastic bags is a really cool thing!
PLARN means plastic bag yarn! You cut it up into strips and then crochet, knit etc.
