dc.description.abstractMAKING PLARN BED MATS FOR THE LOCAL HOMELESS I held classes at the Senior Center, teaching all the participants how to make “plarn”, AKA plastic yarn. We use the plarn to make bed mats for our local homeless individuals. This project gets plastic bags out of our environment, brings people together in a social circle, and gives homeless individuals a softer and dryer surface to lay. We got together in the craft room, where we shared stories and loop strips of plastic bags together to make plarn. The second half of the classes we crocheted the 3-by-6 feet bed mat that takes more than 700 used plastic bags. I and several women sat together to work on this project. This process has brought women from the area together, while getting to know each other, laughing, and learning a new skill to pass on. With the help of the women attending my classes at the Senior Center, I completed a plarn bed mat.en_US
