Does anyone want me to make an instructable on how to make string out of (stinging) nettle plants (or similar)?

 This depends on what sort of plants I can find around my house and how much revision and coursework I have to wade through.

Aren't they edible also?  If boiled or something.....

They die off then grow back. Now isn't the best time of year for fresh stringy-plants.

sounds cool
Um... Yeah, I'd be happy to see such an instructable, if you feel up to making one.

BTW, I noticed these in the "related" column

Before getting started look over these ibles first.  You might just decide that these have covered the topic already.  If so, you've saved yourself some work!

I point out these links not to discourage you, just to show what has been added to Instructables already.
