“Plarn” by Carmen Barfield


Artist: Carmen Barfield

Genre: Other

Bio: I create items out of Plarn, the plastic bags one throws away after going to the store.
I weave them together to make balls and then use my needles or hooks to make items.
I use aluminum cans as well. I crochet and knit them together using only the bags and cans.
No two are ever alike.

I have made tote bags out of ice cream tubs and plarn, hats, coasters, bracelets, headbands, and
doilies. Just about anything that can be crocheted or knitted can be made out of plarn.
