  1. […] Earlier this week I decided to cut a plastic table cloth into plarn.  I basically did what Creative Jewish Mom did with her sheets but without the ripping.  While cutting my plarn I was brainstorming for ideas of what I could use it for other than the basic idea of a shopping bag.  My first thought was a head band, but that wouldn’t be very comfy. So then I am thinking… hmmm, maybe a plastic bag dispenser… but I really love the way my plastic bag dispensers turned out made from regular yarn.  So then I am looking on the web and around the house.. hmmm, what would be good made from plastic. a frisbee? Maybe?!  Then I realized how great a ninja star would fly if it were plastic. So that is what I did  Plarntastic!! Its not as safe and pain free, when getting hit in the face, as the acrylic ninja star. But it floats! This will always be packed in our beach bag! […]
