But this isn't just any ordinary pop tab bracelet, this is an eco friendly pop tab bracelet because it is made with plarn.
'Plarn' .. it is a commonly used word heard quite a bit in the crafting community. You can find write-ups and tutorials about it on various blogs and websites as well as in YouTube.What exactly is Plarn? It is a very creative way to recycle plastic bags you bring home from the grocery store, retail stores, and even fast food restaurants.
The word 'Plarn' is derived from 2 words combined: [Pl (plastic) + Arn (yarn) = Plarn] .
I recently hosted my first Crochet-Plarn Along and had so much fun with it I decided - Hey!! let's squeeze one more in before saying good-bye to 2010 ....
This Crochet-Plarn Along will be in honor of those that are seeking a 'last minute gift idea' or have a 'hard to buy for person' on their gift list.
The skill level: Easy
This pattern is so super simple that even the newest of new crocheter can do - all you need is:
- Crochet hook - size F
- Approximately 14 pop tabs consistent in size
- 2 standard size plastic grocery bags or 1 of each color
(except if you're laughing too hard from watching something funny on TV or chatting away with friends ...all of which are completely acceptable and encouraged)
I will share the pattern in 2 sets beginning Tues, 12/7 and last posting on Sun, 12/12.
