I grew up on a commercial fishing boat so I've always had a love for knots and the different designs you can make with simple ropes and cords. I met a lady who was making handbags and purses out of plastic bags and I was intrigued.
So one day I ran out of cigarettes and was just going crazy job searching and couch surfing and just needed something to keep my hands busy for a moment. But I was also out of hemp, my usual medium. But doesn't every one have a ton of plastic grocery bags under their sink? After a couple You tube videos on how to make plarn this crazy hobby of mine was born. That was about four or five years ago and I have come up with a few different designs since then. I couldn't even begin to guess how many plastic bags I've recycled since then or how many packs of cigarettes I've traded for a bracelet made of one man's garbage. lol ;)…
