100 Day Project Day 17

Quick Links: On Day 14 I went over how to remove ink from plastic bags so that you can start with a blank canvas. On Day 9 I went over how to make plarn. And on Day 11 I did an experiment with adding paint to plastic bags to make colored plarn.

*Update: This is part four of the plarn harvest. Read parts one, two, and three.

*Update 2: Since this post, I’ve made an all-in-one post about removing ink, coloring, and making plarn. Read it here.

Day 100 of The 100 Day Project: So yesterday I added some color to the plastic bags and today I cut ‘em up to make plarn from them. I put some quick links at the top of the post for exactly how to do each step in making plarn.

There isn’t much else to report here except the progress and how the plarn turned out. The answer is: REALLY FUCKING PRETTY.
