It's amazing how long of a strand you can get from just a few bags!!! I have one nice sized ball, and I've started on another. I figure it would be a good idea to do it in small bits....or risk going crazy!!!

My cat loves the process....

Oh wow! I just found this today, and I must say thank you! haha.
I've basically just raided my house for plastic bags and started cutting them up.
I needed  way to make a beach bag for the summer, this is perfect!  Grin


oh, and a little random question:
What do you do with the pieces (like the handle and the very bottom) that you don't use?

I'm saving mine... and I hope I'll think of something to use it for! Haha

I hadn't realized you WANTED them to be loops. I cut straight strips and then knotted them. It didn't work out as well Embarrassed
