for various reasons, one in particular, i've not posted for quite a while on this blog but i recently decided that, after all, one single disappointment was not going to keep me from your company. besides i'd like to share this idea because it's all about recycling and it makes a nice little Spring gift, for Mother's day, a friend or a sister...
all you have to do is to tear some old curtains, bed sheets...etc... into continuous strips (to avoid sewing them). the larger they are the bigger your crochet hook has to be.
the flower is simply made of several fabric squares stitched together. (best when viewed large, please click on picture)
i made this rectangle bag including the flower with a little less than 3 yards of fabric & a european hook size 9. i'm now working on a (crocheted) round rug & the fact that it is coming along fast is very rewarding.
edit : thank you all for the warm welcome (back) ! i'll reply to your questions in the comment section & i'm looking forward to maybe seeing some more bags here if you're up for recycling ;)
