I don't have directions, but I can tell you how I made the bag. This is the third bag I have made and I have learned quite a bit by trial and error.

First you need some bags. If you do not have enough, people will gladly give you some.

I take a bag and smooth it flat with my hands. Then I fold it several times lengthwise to about 3" wide. I take scissors and cut off the bottom and throw it away. Then I take slices (horizontally) about 1" wide. This makes a loop when opened. I take the loops and loop them together to make a yarn. (remember hooking rubber bands together in a chain when you were a kid?)

Here is a picture of a bag folded, a loop (unfolded) and the ball of "yarn".
