I haven’t been blogging much recently, but not because I haven’t been making! I’ve been so tied up in wedding planning and end of year school things that all I’ve wanted to do is relax in my garden hammock!
A lady at work discovered T shirt yarn whilst on holiday in Ibiza. She also had a go at making her own yarn out of an old tshirt (see here!) and made a gorgeous craft bag!
I found some Tek Tek cotton tshirt yarn online and decided I wanted to have a go at making my own!
I used this pattern after a search on the internet but used single/double (us/uk) stitches instead and extended the height of the bag. The bag has a special ‘bottom’ so it sits nice and flat.
It was a really different crochet experience as i used a 12mm hook and had a very sore hand! Luckily due to the thickness of the fabric it made up within a couple of days. The colours were Tek Tek petrol blue and blue spot.
Also made a flower brooch to attach!
