Sleeping mats for the homeless

A friend of mine posted on FB about making sleeping mats for the homeless. It seems some missionaries visited her church and she got excited by what they were doing. She searched and a site teaching her to make them. She even found a video.

I volunteered to make plarn to help her get the mat done. It’s not hard and it’s easy to do while spending time with hubby in front of TV.

First mat almost finished.


My church helped by giving me this bag full of grocery bags, but sadly it’s empty now. It produced 4- 5″ balls of plarn.

Finished bag and the scrap to be recycled
