Very nice basket!  Did you use Tunisian crochet?  I've read articles on crocheted baskets and it is on my very long list too do.  By the way I did see any mess, just a crafting environment!

We needed a trash can for the bathroom and I thought Plarn would be the perfect thing. Plus the bags are free. I alternated with some twine for a more boho look.

This is great! What is it about a TARDIS - small, yet perfectly formed. I just made a TARDIS Altoid tin for a friend who's getting married.

It's so cute!

This is just too cute!!! How big is the box? This looks like it's a little bigger than most miniatures, but still small enough to fit on a shelf or a desk at work or something..? Fantastic idea!!

It's a small candy box, it's only a few inches tall

Cute! Is the trim made from some kind of polka dot patterned tape?

Yes it is

8  HOME SWEET HOME / Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Pop tab lamp shade, with joining tutorial! on: August 24, 2014 01:04:55 PM



I made this lamp for my dorm using the same technique as my pop tab dress (seen here: http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=434253.0#axzz3BL4ucPZY )

After several requests from my fellow craftsters I made a tutorial

Anyway, this process involves crocheting pop tabs together in a chain maile fashion

You will need:

3.5 mm crochet hook
Crochet thread
Scissors
A lot of pop tabs
And a lot of patience



So you'll start off with four pop tabs facing the same way


Like so

Then you want to have the shiny sides facing  each other and have the hole overlaps so that you can crochet through them









Then you'll add two at a time, one on each sides shiny side down

I put two sc in each hole. If you're making a flat piece crochet in the first hole, if you're making it round then skip it and the last sc in the row and leave a long tail.

When stitching make sure you go through all four pop tabs at a time

 



It should look like this when opened



Then make your row the desired length (note there will be horizontal stretch but not vertical)

Then on the next row you should just attach two pop tabs to the top of your chain to start the next row, and then add on at a time for the rest in the row



Repeat until desired size




I made mine round so at the end I had to attach the ends together

You line them up, then use the tail to sc them together






In this tutorial I made a lamp, so I used yarn to sc a trim around the edges and attached it to a lamp shade piece





All done!


Thanks for looking :-D

9  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / Tunisian crochet pillow makeover on: August 07, 2014 06:56:54 AM
I found a really cheap pillow at ikea (only 1.50!) and decided to spruce it up by adding a cover

I recently bought a pair of doc martens (which i adore  Grin ) and i found that the box it came in seemed particularly sturdy. I also happened to need a place to put all my make up instead of leaving it thrown about on my dresser. Thus this little number was born.
