Crafts 4 Missions Group
The craft group has been busy crocheting plastic bag strips into sleeping mats for the homeless. To do this, we cut plastic shopping bags into strips and crochet these strips into blankets.
We need plastic grocery bags, and we need those willing to spend time to cut each plastic into strips. This is a much needed step that takes as much time if not longer than crocheting itself. Each mat requires about 800 plastic bags that need to be flattened, cut, and rolled to make the "plarn."
We have a good time doing this as we fellowship together (even the men had a good time), and do our part to put those shopping bags to good use for those in need.
