    This looks right up My Wife's ally, I bet she could come up with some really neat ideas for this. I also think I can see some other uses for this sort of thing! Really cool idea!

    That would be really cool, I just found it today and will pull out my crochet hook. I make face scrubs from wool and non-stick pan scrubs from marine netting but this looked interesting. New idea's would be awesome. (yes I crochet and watch TV, I use to sit in company meetings and crochet, my boss thought it was funny but I focus better when my hands are occupied)

    I remember a study somewhere that says when your hands are occupied it triggers more parts of your brain. Its why typing is good for brain development.

    What a great idea. I always wondered how to re-purpose all those plastic bags. I wonder how they hold up? It would be cool to make any entry rug out of one. It would not absorb the water during winter but it would be a conversation piece.

    I don't know how the will hold up. I will make a couple of small pieces and put them in the sun. I'm sure the biodegradable plastic won't last long

    Sisal rope (1/4 inch) should make a nice durable mat...

    Normally the leaves are crushed and beaten then scraped down to the fibers... then dried and woven into twine, cord or ropes...
