The 7-10 Split anyone can pick up

Hi -

I'm always looking at new idea to let my creative juices run wild and make more than just market bags from plarn (plastic yarn).

My 19yr old son asked me to make a graduation gift for a female bowling friend. And, of course, when I asked him to tell me alittle something about her to get a few ideas of what to make, all I got was - she's a girl mom, what more is there to say. That was a big help.

I wanted to give her something bowling related so I just let my imagination run wild and before I knew it, I had made a bowling pin. Well, you can't have a bowling pin without a bowling ball. Before I knew it, 1 pin led to making this bag.

Hence, the birth of a 7-10 Split Plarn bag.

He's somewhat of a quiet kid so I got the biggest laugh when he told me he gave her the gift out in the parking lot so not to draw too much attention inside the center. That didn't work because she ended up taking it into the bowling center and before the tournament started, showed it to EVERYONE.

This picture shows alittle bit of the bowling fabric I used for the lining that I sewed into the bag. I tried to get closer but when I got too close, the image started to blur:

I hope you enjoy this as much as I enjoyed making it.

  1. I Love The Bowling Bag You Made. Somehow I Can't Quite Grasp The Concept Of Something Made From Plarn,But The Design Is So Cute. Maybe I'll Have To Give "PLARN A TRY "
