a woman shows how she makes sleeping roles for people sleeping rough.  It takes five to seven hundred plastic bags to make one mat.  That's a lot of plastic kept out of the landfill.  



Apparently, this goes on the ground, under the blankets to insulate the sleeper from the cold.

More detailed instructions for making a bed roll form plastic bags.



And a totally different method using a frame loom.



I wonder if this method of weaving would be more comfortable
