What's Plarn, you say? 

Plarn is Plastic Yarn made from recycled grocery bags. Really simple to make and you get quite a good length of "plarn" from 1 bag.

When I started my project I was going to use all different colors of bags, but as I got going I liked the beige colored bags with a little black in them so I decided to stick with those for the whole project. 

And here we have it, a "plarn" sun hat with a "plarn" flower to adorn it. It took about 25-30 grocery bags to complete the hat. It has a velvet ribbon threaded through it. It was fun and I would definitely do it again. It looks like a straw hat till you get up close.
