Recycled Plastic Bag scraps~

As I continue to work on recycling plastic bags, often with inspiration from http://www.myrecycledbags.com/the question keeps coming up on what to do with all the scraps of plastic left over after cutting my plarn. blogsizeplasticbags.jpgWell, the answer is here. I have used them previously to stuff a pre-sewn pillow case, but this was a lot of plastic. I have been collecting the scraps in a “Force Flex” garbage bag I got from somewhere and one day I just leaned back on it and realized that it was very comfy and not all loud and crinkly! blogsizebag.jpgSo, I tied up the bag, put it inside an allergen cover for a pillow that I had sitting around because the zipper was messed up and I couldn’t fix it, and then put the whole lot in a pillow sham. It worked out great! So, now there is a way to use all those great scraps from your recycled plastic bag projects.blogsizepillow.jpg
