What advice would you give someone starting this project? Take lots of breaks when crocheting with plarn, to give your hands and arms time to rest. See the "Saving Your Hands and Arms When Using Plarn" link from the pattern page.

These have been around since I was little in South Africa, the native women used to sit on the street corners crocheting and chatting away selling their bags as they complete them, glad to find someone to show me how to make them I was too young to be interested to learn how to when I was growing up bu have reently been wanting to try to make them and maybe sell some for X mas stocking fillers

Sorry about the link problem. I can't get Craftsy to take and hold the link. It's on Ravelry and also on my blog, here:
