I have a goal to make 10 of these sleeping mats before the year is over,” it says. The screengrab also shows two images - one of a sleeping bag made from such plastic bags and another that lists the uses and “fun facts” about such mats.
The other image in Em’s recent tweet shows her sitting surrounded by plastic bags, plastic bag yarn and some completed mats.

“This is awesome! Amazing job, I bet this takes a lot of patience,” wrote a Twitter user. To this, Em replied, “For sure! But I love it! Thank you!” Another asked, “I’m just curious if you’re donating these to the homeless? I think this is a great idea making mats out of plastic”. “Yes! 13 so far!” replied Twitter user Em.
