This is really incredible.  I'd like to know how you managed to cut the bottles into such thin pieces.

wow! that tree is amazing and i too  am wondering how you  got that string out of a plastic bottle
 I agree that it does also look like an equatic life form .
 could make one like it out of plastic bag and maybe have a fish or turtle or something stuck in it, like what happens in real life.

Wow! Super awesome!  How may bottles did it take to make this and how did you cut them so thinly?  Did you have to combine ends of your "yarn"?  If so did you tie it, melt it together, or something else?  What a great idea!  Thanks for sharing!

My question is did the plastic hurt your finger while you were crocheting? Yarn makes my finger hurt sometimes, I can only imagine how thinnly cut plastic would feel... Or did you wear a glove or something? [/silly questions]
