Different Verson of the Plastic Bag Rope




this is my first instructable so be gentle. I saw that instructable on how they recycled plasticbags and made rope out of it so i decided to do that because we all got bags in that little corner of our kitchen so any way when i saw how they did it, it made me think how strong it was the way they were cutting it so like everyone else on this website i made little changes here and there to make it better (so i think) so here it goes. and i got the idea from this instructable

    Cool! Much easier for me to explain, the other one was hard. Nice job!

    This is a neat idea. However I would check your spelling on a couple of things.
