For People Who Like to Make Things Themselves

I do macreme, but im not up to buying expensive hemp. Recently I have been using anything I can get my hands on, t-shirt strips, shoelaces, crochet string, and yarn. The t shirt macrame looks really cool if you use tie dye shirts. I'm kind of getting bored of just using these material. Anyone have any ideas of what else I could possibly use?
I got so desperate that I am considering using that wierd netting bag around oranges just because of the cool texture.
Thanks Love you all!

Yeah I was thinking some twine, but I really want some outofthebox material. Maybe trash bag material? that might be cool looking

So, if you don't mind a bit of process, you could turn grocery store plastic bags into thick materials and cut it into strips. Here's a video on how to make the "fabric".
