Meet my first bandana ball!
I love crafts blogs! You can zip all over the internet in five minutes and see so many interesting and fun ideas it’s staggering! Today, I was merrily clicking along blogrolls from my favorite bloggers and happened upon this blog entry that showed the blogger’s progress on a crocheted rug. But, as you can see, it wasn’t just any old rug. It was crocheted with fabric yarn! Yes! I loved it immediately! I remembered seeing something similar in an Erika Knight book I bought ages ago, Comforts of Home Simple Knitted Accents. I had always meant to try her rag rug and this crocheted fabric rug brought it all back! Truth be told, I probably still won’t be trying that rag rug any time soon (we’ll see). But I had been wondering what to do with all of this leftover fabric I get when I make my wraps for packaging my knits.
You see all that? Mmmhmmm. And there’s more where that came from.
This was a gift for my mil. Last year. Along with the latest for This Guy, those are actually the last two bandanas that I used. Problem is, they’re oftentimes way too small for the boxes that I make to package most knits. Yeah, I could stop making boxes. But actually, that’s part of the fun! So, at this point, they’re taking up needed space. Now, I know how I can give all of those scraps something to do!
Man, I love crafts blogs!
