Lentil weaving and noodle knitting

Who knew you could create beautiful things from discarded plastic bags? Well, you can and here’s how to prepare the bags into a ‘thread’ of sorts, which you can use to weave all sorts of creations with:  pencil pots, shopping bags, place mats, rugs, etc.

I discovered this through the very stylish Fine Little Day blog, who showed us some bright and fun mats that her Grandmother (of the very much make-do-and-mend generation) has made. Love it!
