White Plarn in Progress, part 2

I'm going in a different direction with this bag...it will be more of a handbag, and less of a tote. I like the shape of it, so far. However, lining it is going to be loads of fun.

This is the second ball of plarn I've used to create the sides of this bag. I wish I'd kept track of how many plastic bags went into each ball. If I had to guess, I'd say I've salvaged at least 50 bags so far.

I just discovered that the recycling center here doesn't accept plastic bags. Which makes me wonder, what happens to the bags that go into the recycling bins at Kroger and Walmart? Are they just getting thrown away? It wouldn't surprise me...
