Fabric of a Different Sort

Not your normal fabric, woven polypropylene is often used for bagging material for bird seed, dog food, grains, etc. My wife decided to try and recycle these 'plastic' bags as something useful for her Pre-K classroom. She has fashioned the bag material into roll-up crayon holders for her kids. She manages to make two holders from each bag. A quite jazzy idea I think! And it keeps them from slowly rotting in the landfill.
