yes, please do repost the images! I found the link to this tutorial from a webpage outside the site at craftzine [<click]  with other cool ideas.

Oh, awesome. Smiley
I have been dying for a new bag, and was actually thinking 'hemp' but that can be so darn expensive!
Plastic bags are such a great idea.. And if I can knit it, do I just need a sort of tutorial on how to knit bags, and I'm set, as long as I've got the plarn? Cheesy

Everyone loves some kind of chips.
And they ALL come in some form of bag.
So what do we do with these bags?
Jalapeno Doritos come in a lively green bag, with big bold words on the front, while Original Lays come in a sunnier yellow bag.
Most are made of some shiny aluminum foil-like stuff. Probably not bio-degradable, and being in high school at such a time where there are big debates over eco-friendly activism, I want to do my part!
Last night we had a party, and ate 4 bags of chips, in varying colours and brands.
Instead of throwing out that nasty [ yet previously delicious ] bag, what can you do?


EDIT // :

I found some sites with tuts!
chip bags could also be used for...
another cool idea is patches
more stuff.

I am new to this site, and very interested in creating something so unique and eco-friendly.. so, please forgive me for being naive, but how do you use the 'plarn' to create such a bag? I have knitted scarves before, but nothing more than that. Is this a crocheted feature?
Are there any tutorials that may aid me in figuring this out? Tongue

Much appreciated!  Wink
