    Looking at Rosa Ferrigno's new suit,you could swear it was knitted (织)with regular yam(毛线).It's only when you touch it and hear the characteristic rustling(沙沙声)of plastic that you realize there's something special about it. In fact, the suit is made out of over 300 plastic grocery bags.

    Ferrigno, who once worked as a tailor before starting a family, got the idea for her unique hand-made suit last August. She was at a family picnic and saw one of the other guests carrying a purse made from re-purposed plastic bags. It attracted her, so she and her daughter searched for instructions on how to make one on YouTube. The 75- year-old ended up making a purse from colorful plastic bags. But that was only the beginning. After finishing her second plastic bag purse,Ferrigno realized she needed something to match it with,so last November she told her daughter she was going to make a skirt and jacket suit out of plastic bags,as a winter project.

    Rosa started by cutting up the plastic bags into strips(条)and then tying them together to make longer, yam-like strips that could be knitted. But to knit the plastic yam, she needed large needles that didn’ t exist on the market, so she made them on her own.

    The suit took Rosa two months to complete. The jacket was made out of 170 plastic bags, and the skirt required another 140. Although she didn’ t even use a pattern when knitting the impressive suit, it ended up fitting her perfectly, and when she finally showed it off at the supermarket earlier this month, everyone went crazy.

“We love it when our customers reuse or recycle grocery bags, but never have we seen a work of art like Rosa 's! It's really fantastic! ”Jo Natale, the supermarket chain 's vice president of media relations, said,
