Bags from bags

When I decided to save plastic bags to recycle into plarn (plastic yarn) I enlisted my co workers to share their bags, too. Before I knew it plastic bags were taking over every available space in my life, or at least it seemed that way.
So many other projects were much more appealing, and in all honesty easier on my hands and wrists. But the bags kept amassing and something had to be done, hence bags from bags. I sketched out several designs and had (and still have) more than enough materials.

Like printing money

My friend's husband once said of the Magnum PI blanket, "I would think that it would be like printing money." Only a short time later I had a request on my Etsy store to make another Magnum Blanket on commission. Like printing money, sort of.
The experience was overwhelmingly positive. I shared updates as I worked on the blanket and was especially grateful to receive a photo of the blanket with its grateful recipient. If you are interested in commissioning a themed blanket, I would be happy to work with you on it.  Check out my Etsy shop to request a custom item!
