As I have said, I like to repurpose things, and I like things that are free. This project served both of those purposes. I save all of the plastic bags from shopping and make "plarn," a yarn of sorts from cutting the bag into strips. The printing on the bag gives it a little splash of color, and colored bags give a little stripe amongst the white. Now I have waterproof gear for the beach, and can keep the sun out of my eyes.
