Chris Ley's Mat Project

Thank you for supporting my Eagle project at your church.

Here are some interesting facts:

  1. It takes 700-800 plastic bags to make one mat.
  2. It takes 30 hours to crochet one mat, longer if someone is just learning to crochet.
  3. My goal is to donate 10 mats (I need 8000 plastic bags!)
  4. If I get enough stitchers, then I would like to donate more than 10.
  5. Boy Scouts of Troop 1201 are helping to weave the plastic bags into plyarn.
  6. Sharyl Lewis is my sponsor and has given me a lot of support.

I really need help with crocheting. I may need more clean dry plastic bags if I have enough stitchers. I might also need to use the Fellowship Hall to host a work party to cut and weave plastic bags.

Thank you for taking an interest in my project!
