Plarn Owl Wristlet

Here’s an idea I’ve had for a while; turning my weeble wobble owl into a change purse.  Since it came out a bit large, I added the strap, thus making it into a wristlet.

This time I used a pale green for the eyes and pink for the beak (instead of white and orange, respectively).  Overall I’m happy with the way this turned out.  It’s the perfect size for your cell phone, credit card/ licence and some cash.

Not formilure with plarn?  Plarn is short for plastic yarn and is made entirely from plastic grocery bags.  To read more about how I came to work with plarn you can check out my previous post titled “Crocheting with plastic bags; a six year journey” and to learn how to make plarn yourself you can check out my post “Toot Tuesday; Making Plarn.”

****UPDATE****

The NEW plarn owl wristlet version is now available in my Etsy store!
