Plastic ribbon coasters

Introduction

In my bid to try and recycle things. I have been using alternatives to yarn. I have lots of the ribbon used to create bows around parcels, I’m not even sure what is called but florist use it to adorn bunches of flowers .They come in glorious range of colour.They are also waterproof and heatproof.

Using carrer bags is a great way of reducing waste. First you have to prepare the bags into a ball of plasticyarn. For instructions on how to do this,check out u tube .Once you have done that it’s so simple , working with plastic is fun.

The beauty of this pattern is that you decide how large you want it to be ,large placemat size, coaster size its up to you.

As with most of my patterns I free myself from the mantra always make a tension swatch.
