Pay-it-Forward Plarn Projects

Pay-it-Forward Plarn Project - FREE!

Don't throw away your plastic grocery bags! Make plarn instead and create one of these great baskets or market bag, then fill one up with a few goodies to take to your local homeless shelter or food bank!


All models were created with plarn (instructions included) and a size J (6.00 mm) crochet hook. Approximately 40 to 45 plastic grocery bags are needed to make the plarn for each item depending on the width of the strips made and thickness of the bag. Cardboard to reinforce the bottoms of the baskets and large decorative buttons are also needed for these projects.

Finished Sizes:

Finished size varies depending on the size of the plarn made.
