That thrift store run yesterday was just the thing I needed to get my creativity flowing again. After I made the t-shirt yarn that I posted about yesterday, I started playing around with it and seeing how it worked up. I decided to practice some knitting. I learned how to add new yarn in my knitting! Total breakthrough for me! For you knitters, I'm sure you are rolling your eyes but I am not catching on to knitting as fast as I did with crochet but I'm slowly getting it and it is making me extremely happy!
I decided to make a pouch with my knitted t-shirt yarn. I added a button from my button collection and sewed up the edges to make a pouch! Cute! I'm not sure what I'll use it for but I just feel good about myself because I made something completely out of reused items!
After I finished my t-shirt yarn I wanted to see what else I could use for "yarn." I found an old pillowcase that was in the throw away pile after cleaning up my closet. I cut it up in the same fashion as the t-shirt and crocheted up this little bowl. Seth says it will hold lots of quarters or I could put it in a tree and maybe a bird would make a nest out of it! ha!
I am really enjoying seeing what I can repurpose around the house! It's a good way to recycle and reduce waste going into the landfills. Next thing I'm going to try is plastic bag "yarn." I have a ton of those saved up! We'll see how that works!
I also finished my kitchen rug while watching The Biggest Loser & Parenthood last night. I really love how it turned out! It looks cute in my kitchen! I took the picture outside because it is better lighting on my balcony plus my kitchen floor is probably a little dirty... haha!
