How to Weave Old Plastic Bags to New Bag 1 !!

by - 5:26 AM
This is another easy way to reuse plastic bags,
no crochet skill require just "weave" over and under!

New bag weave from old plastic bags.
I'm interested in making plastic bag yarn, or 'plarn', because it is an easy way to reuse old plastic bags that we can found in almost any home but i don't like to used in crochet and knitting projects that I have only basic skill  ( -*- !)  so I try to weave new bag from old plastic bags !  

Prepare the cardboard loom for weaving old plastic bags. 

Prepare a cardboard a little bit bigger than the size bag you want to make.
Measure your card board and cut small slits on the top and bottom sides.
The first and the second (pink) line is about 1/2 inch apart and others is 1 inch apart. 
(You can make them narrower, more beautiful but need more time to weave,too.)








Cut small slits on the top and bottom sides, and this cardbord is your loom now.

1. Add the warp threads to the cardboard loom.
(You can use threads or cut large garbage bags in long strips instead.)

2.  I use the green plastic rope instead the thread (hope this makes it easier to see) 

3. Hook the thread in the top slit and pull it down. 

4. Using the slit  to hold it in place.
   Turn the cardboard loom.

5. Hook the thread in the bottom slit to hold it in place and pull the thread up.
 
6. Tight the thread together.


7. Pull the thread beside, hook the thread in the next slit.
 
8. Turn the cardboard loom, do the same as 5-7 step
 
9. Do the same 5. hook the thread in the bottom slit
to hold it in place and pull the thread up. 

10. Do the same 6. tight or hook the thread together.
 
11. Pull the thread beside, hook the thread in the next slit.

12. Take the end and tight or stick it through one of the end slots
and wrap it around the slot. 
Then hook it over the corresponding slot. 
Turn the cardboard loom and hook the thread in the next slit.
 
13. Keep going like this until you've used all the slits up.
Wrap the final end around its slit. 

14.

15. This cardboard loom is now ready for weaving.
