Like Samantha, I decided to use up bits from my yarn stash to knit a pair of clogs to felt. Like hers, mine have soles that are not the same colour - but hey, the whole point was to use up leftover bits of yarn. Pictured with the clogs is a pincushion (that is supposed to look like a cupcake) I crocheted using yarn that I dyed using Kool-Aid. I waited to felt the pincushion along with the clogs.
Here are my felting results:
Now I have sewn tote bags to carry my groceries, but in my pursuit to be more eco friendly when buying produce I needed something more. Well, here is an idea I had for removing those plastic produce bags from my shopping trips. I crocheted two produce intended bags from acrylic yarn scraps (I wanted those bags to be washable!). Here is what it looks like with some new potatoes inside the red bag to test my idea out.
Here is what it looks like when empty and with the drawstring top loosened.
Okay, maybe they're not pretty, but I'm hoping they'll be practical.
