I did a bit of cutting and crocheting today. It was meant to be a practice run really but I'm quite pleased with the result.
This was a piece of fleece fabric, left over from a long forgotten project and left to languish in the basement with a lot of other long forgotten projects.
I had come across an article recently about recycling fabrics by cutting them in to strips and crocheting them into a bath mat. The strips are about 15mm wide and crocheted on a 10mm hook so once you get past the cutting the crocheting bit is really quick.
I think, to be honest that the fleece was a bit too thick but it worked up really quickly and is now about 12 inches in diameter and that only took four rounds with my big fat 10mm hook.
I'm going to have to root around for something else to cut up now as I have just about run out of this fleece. It would obviously defeat the purpose if I went out and bought fabric wouldn't it...
