This may not be the place to post this, but I saw a project that used plarn to make sleeping mats for the homeless.  They were 2 1/2 ft by 6 ft.  When I get enough bags, I am going to start making them to take to the homeless center.

I make plabric with my plastic bags. What you do is take your plastic bags and cut the handles and bottoms off.
Next, you put two cut bags on top of eachother and put them in between two pieces of parchment or wax paper. You then turn on your iron to a medium setting and run it over the plastic bags until you see that they have fused. Make sure to do this in a well ventilated area though because it can get a little smelly Wink

Why hello there!

I made a grocery bag purse by cutting the bags into strips so that they made multiple loops, put the loops together to make a ball of plastic yarn, and then crocheted the bag! You can find a pattern somewhere on the internet I'm sure. That's where I found the pattern for mine, but I can't remember where it was from! It's been so long! But the bag itself stays very sturdy and it's great for a cute clutch. Smiley
