I’m in Ouagadougou (WAGGA doo goo) for this training course. I managed to get away for some shopping last weekend though. These are some of my treasures-all made from old grocery bags. Pretty cool, huh? Well, the hat is actually pretty hot, but I didn’t get this stuff for me to use. It’s to show my friend who has learned to crochet this way. She’s already made two purses-these will be great ideas for her.
How cute are these finger puppets? And who doesn’t need a plastic bag cat? Ok, that one is probably less marketable, but I needed it desperately.
And now, a contest. When I saw this, I asked if it was a bracelet. The woman selling me the stuff looked at me strangely, said that it could be if I wanted it to be, but that it was actually for…guess!
The winner gets this lovely plastic bag key chain that I put in the picture to give an idea of perspective. No one currently living in Africa need apply-no cheating!!

Hemorrhoid pillow? 🙂
…For a midget…
You put it on the handle of your machete, give it a twist, and hang the machete on the wall. (For later use in the dramatic ninja routine that I am still convinced is part of your Africa experience. You know, African ninjas – everyone’s heard of them.)
OK, not a bracelet – how about a scrunchie/hair holder?
Hey, I get it. It holds the baggage onto your head!
