Mamma keeps clothes at my house so she doesn't have to cart her belongings back and forth to Norway. When last here, she sorted through her clothes and chose to charity some and bin others. It was left to me to dispose of said garments in an orderly fashion, but they were out of sight and out of mind, literally. Until that was, yesterday.
Amongst her items was a very serviceable t shirt in the charity pile, when suddenly I had a light bulb moment. My next crochet class I have asked everyone to bring in small towels as we are going to learn how to crochet edges. Looking sideways at the t shirt, I decided to have a pre teaching practise. It didn't hurt either that it's Monday and I had nothing in mind for the Make It Sewcial make, click on the link if you are clueless to what I am alluding: Make It Sewcial Below are my results. Not sure yet that I would wear this out, might do for a spot of gardening, but it has started my creative juices flowing, what about you, any suggestions as how to improve, expand on this...
