I've got a huuuge plastic bag. It's a medium weight clear plastic, about six feet long and about three or four feet wide, folded flat. My futon mattress came rolled up in it.

Any ideas?

Maybe cut it into one huge long narrow strip and knit or crochet with it?

I've also cut up the plastic bags that sheets and comforters come in, to salvage the zippers!

You can cut the bag into smaller pieces, about 4 on top of each other, then run an iron over them so they meld together.  They are more durable this way and can be sewn into other things. I've been practicing making recycled plastic bag bags and bracelets from old grocery bags.They meld into a really cool texture.

Hmmm.... I like that melding idea. Does it work with any kind of plastic bag? I have only seen tutorials and whatnot using the thin opaque kind of grocery bags.

it'll work, but don't do as many layers.  probably just 2 will work.  test it to make sure.  you might also have to turn the heat up higher..
and if it's the kind of plastic bag i'm thinking of, you can cut it down and sew it into a tote bag/ beach bag kind of thing..
