Recycled Plastic Bag scraps~

As I continue to work on recycling plastic bags, often with inspiration from 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
