    Brilliant! It never occurred to me to hook loops together, I’ve been trying to figure out how to make the plastic yarn without tying knots and havine lots of loose ends hanging out!
    I have a half a basement full of bags who are now quivering in anticipation of the wonderful things they can become in their second life. Thanks for this, Cristen!
