Bag made plastic from grocery bags
I saw this pattern on a link,I'm not sure if it was here or Ravelry.I didn't bookmark it....I just knew I could find it again when I needed it......NOT.
It used plasitic grocery bags that were rolled into a tube and cut into one and a half inch strips.
Can anyone send me in the right direction?

That was on Ravelry. I posted some links there.

I have been saving up my grocery bags for this project. Can't wait.

If you want to try again, try going up a needle size or 2.

What type of ndl are you using? Some are 'stickier' than others when working with plastic.
