This project explains how to spin yarn from ordinary plastic grocery bags. This yarn can then be knit into a handbag.
You will need
1. All the plastic bags under your sink.
3. A spindle (ancient simple spinning tool)
4. Knitting needles
Step 1: Cut plastic bags into strips
Follow a spiral pattern around the bag to get one long strip from the entire bag. Don't use your best sewing scissors for this. Cutting plastic bags dulls scissors quickly.
