And I already made all the assembly mistakes so you don't have to. HURRAH!
Don't have extra plastic bags laying around? You can use t-shirts instead! Check out my instructable on making a basket out of old tshirts. :D
Step 1: What you'll need:
- sewing needles (sharps OR heavy duty will work best)
- white thread (I chose polyester for added strength)
- a thimble (I really recommend coin thimbles)
- plastic bags of all types - grocery bags are easiest, but you can mix and match.
I did lose track of how many bags I used to create this basket, but I'm guessing it was no more than 30. :)
SUPER FANCY BAGS TO LENGTH UPDATE: It took me 51 plastic bags to get 60 feet. Not too shabby. I completed my latest rope in less than 8 hours of work, too! The latest rope is picture 2.
