I saw a clip on the news about a lady that crocheted carrying bags for groceries etc. from used plastic Safeway bags. Would anyone know how this is done.

Great idea. I started making a plastic bag rug to use as a doormat years ago, and never finished it because it seemed to take forever. I guess the large M hook makes it a quick project.
Thanks everyone for all the info. I'm saving all my bread bags at present. I'll have a go at crocheting one or two. I also saw instructions for ironing several (under paper). The bottoms were cut off and sides opened out and several ironed to be bonded together by the heat. A video was made showing community groups doing this activity to make their own bags. Can't remember, but I think it came under the "recycling shopping bags" tag or similar wording.
