Straw...

For my Not Yarn project I decided to use straw. I found these two old straw hats that were bought years ago at a dollar store and decided that I would Recycle them into a snail purse. I think I might mix some yarn in with it, not sure yet.

Here are the hats before froggin...

I'm getting so many ideas here. I'll never need to buy yarn again! Well, maybe that's overstating things a bit. Your post reminds me of an idea I had, though - knitting with raffia. Ever done it? Maybe that's about what your straw hat material is. What is raffia, anyway?
