Happy Earth Day 2017, Crafters! As Earth day was getting closer and closer, I was thinking about how I, as a maker, reduce my carbon footprint on our lovely planet. I thought I would share some ways you can too!

Happy Earth Day everyone (or should I say Earth Night)! Just thought I would do a quick post here to share some great picks of the awesome things you can do with plarn! What’s plarn you ask? It’s such a great (and green!) medium for crocheting or knitting with & you’re helping the environment out at the same time since it can take multiple bags to make an item!
If you need a “how to” on how to make a plarn ball you can check a great post by myrecycledbags.com! And now, to some projects for that plarn ball you’ve got!
