Tutorial 06: how to cut plastic bags into yarn (plarn)?
Here is the practical process of cutting a plastic bag into yarn, you will need:
A pair of scissors
A clean single-use plastic bag
A small stick
Clean and dry a single-use plastic bag.
I cut off the top and the end of a plastic bag, folding the rest of the plastic bag four to five times
Then I made diagonal cuts, the gap of the cuts being around 2 cm.
After cutting, I unfold the bag to turn it into a long yarn (plarn)
Then I roll it around a wooden stick.
This is the process of making plastic yarn; it can be used for crocheting, knitting, weaving and embroidery projects. You can also check out the video tutorial here:
