Sleep Mats for the Homeless
Learn how to make “plarn” (plastic yarn) to turn plastic bags into sleep mats for the homeless.
These crocheted mats are remarkably comfortable and offer just enough to create a barrier between the ground and the body, to help retain body heat while sleeping.
The mats are also a cleaner way of sleeping. Bugs don’t like them. And when dirty, they can be easily hosed off, shaken out and be good to go again.
If you can, bring a crochet needle size Q or N and scissors.
