Crocheted Sleeping Mats

I'm taking Tai Chi for Balance, as I've posted before. Now I'm also taking it at Faith Westwood United Methodist Church. The church has a Care Ministry that distributes sleeping mats to the homeless. 

The mats are made with strips cut from plastic shopping bags. 

They can be colorful when the bags are sorted creatively.

I found pdf directions online and a Youtube video

A cheap, caring, useful, social activity using repurposed materials. One person's trash really can be another person's treasure.
