This is SERIOUSLY AWESOME. IT is a crochet sleeping mat using plastic bags. Here the idea is to make them and donate them to homeless people as they can be washed easily, are very light weight and protect from sleeping directly on concrete. Also, it does give the idea of using them as door mats for the outdoor shower, or patio/garden entrance. I WILL be making a few of these.
