another plastic bag bag

Hey guys,
As most of you know, I'm making another plastic bag bag, but this time instead of fusing together the bags, I'm crocheting them. All I did was chain about 50, made it a loop, and used dc for about 5 inches. Then I ran out of plastic bags because for some reason we don't have any. If you want to make one, whatever you do, do not use the kind of black grocery bag that feels sort of waxy. It is way more trouble than it's worth.

To make the yarn (thanks TY) cut off the handles and the bottom (and save them to fuse together for something else) and lay the bag down flat. You should have a flat cylinder of plastic. Cut 1 inch strips. It's kind of hard to explain, but you should have circles. Using the girth hitch (you can find that here), connect all of the circles into a long string. That’s all!

Incase you were wondering, the contest is still going. It won't be stopping until we get at least 10 comments, so get people to comment!
