I had a lazy day in my garden retreat yesterday, playing with fabric. What this really means is I’ve got so much fabric in my stash chest that I can’t get the lid shut, and I was fed up with tripping over it all. So I decamped to the shed with an armful.
The sounds of frantic ripping could soon be heard in the garden
I decided to try making some yarn out of fabric. I’ve experimented with knitting fabric yarn before, with not much success. But I found that if I crochet with it, it makes a lovely neat material.
I can’t really crochet, only the basic stitches, but I’ve decided to have a go at making a fabric bowl (nothing like over ambition). It’s going pretty well and the best thing is that with a giant crochet hook and 1cm wide yarn it is REALLY QUICK.
I’ve also used about half a duvet cover so far so I now have a bit of space in the stash (read I can get the lid of the chest closed if I put the sewing machine on top!)
