Five Trashion Fashions that You Can Recreate

knitting with plarnIt was two tips ago, but I can still hear your shrieks of outrage due to the fact that I iron plastic. The toxic fumes! The airborne pollutants! Bad eco-crafter!

If ironing plastic freaks you out too much, then check out this plarn tutorial, courtesy of our own Kelly Rand. You can knit with plarn, crochet with it, and weave with it, and you don’t have to heat it up and make it all stinky.

I'm a writer, crafter, Zombie Preparedness Planner, and homeschooling momma of two kids who will hopefully someday transition into using their genius for good, not the evil machinations and mess-making in which they currently indulge. I'm interested in recycling and nature crafts, food security, STEM education, and the DIY lifestyle, however it's manifested--making myself some underwear out of T-shirts? Done it. Teaching myself guitar? Doing it right now.

Visit my blog Craft Knife for a peek at our very weird handmade homeschool life; my etsy shop Pumpkin+Bear for a truly odd number of rainbow-themed beeswax pretties; and my for links to articles about poverty, educational politics, and this famous cat who lives in my neighborhood.
