1. If the bag has handles cut them off (don't use your good fabric scissors it will blunt them)
2e. Start by cutting at an angle
2f. Than cut straight until end of bag, so you have one long continuous strand
3. Wind into a ball (this applies to both methods)

2. I use two methods for cutting plastic bags. The loop method and the continuous strand method.
Preparing your plastic bag for crocheting
(or knitting, weaving, embroidery, tatting, lace-making..........)
2a.
THE LOOP METHOD
2a. Cut straight across bag to form loops
2b, Join loops together by placing one loop inside another
2c. Take both ends of the inserted loop and again place one end inside the other
2d. Pull loop ends firmly (do not pull to much or you will snap the plastic) you will have made a knot
Continue until you have desired lenght
tip. make multi-coloured balls by mixing different colour bag loops together
