Blanket Stitch Tutorial
plastic bags in any colour or size
1) Start by smoothing out your bag and roll flat. Be sure there are no ruffles within the folds.
2) Cut off handles and bottom seared closure.
3) Unroll the bag and make sure both ends are tidy and open.
5) Roll back up leaving out approximately 5 cm at the top.
6) Start cutting the folded portion of the bag. This is where you need to decide if you want thick of thin "yarn". The wider the strip, the ticker the yarn.
7) Make sure to leave the top 5cm uncut.
8) Cut right to the end, tidying up the left side of any jagged edges.
10) Using your arm, separate both sides on the inside. It helps to shake it all out!
(FYI. This step also doubles as great entertainment for babies and cats...just sayin'.)
11) Start by cutting the top far right strand on an angle.
12) Cut bottom to top, on an angle, continuing to "unwind" in a tube.
13) You should be left with one complete strand.
14) Wind into a ball.
Try different colours, weights and thickness of plastic. Remember, every bag you add into a project is one less in the landfills or ocean!
You can use plarn in any project. Try knitting or crocheting with it!
