1  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Crocheted Pop Tab Purse on: August 12, 2013 11:17:12 PM
Craftster to me, means being able to show my crazy new techniques to people who understand and appreciate what goes into them. Craftster is a place I feel accepted no matter how strange my new ideas are. I have been using plarn for the last year, waiting and saving up pop tabs to make this purse. It took me and my friends the whole year to get enough! This was my first attempt at crocheting with pop tabs and I must say, I LOVE IT! (Much easier on my hands than plarn)

Thanks so much! I did post a wallet I made as well. I have made tons of stuff but not really anything better than those items. Did you post pics of yours?

Thanks so much Dee! I was happy with how it turned out! I'm a nerd so the d20 fit well with me

plarn wallet

I had an old hinge wallet that broke apart. Instead of throwing it away I used plarn (plastic bags into yarn) to crochet a case for it and sewed it all together. I drilled into a d20 and used it as my button for the latch. I also added two pockets in the middle to hold my checkbook and receipts. It still has places to hold my I.D, cards, and change pocket with zipper. I also have two hidden pockets underneath each side of the original wallet. Below are the pics of the wallet opened and closed.

Yes Lizzy, they are actually more comfy than you would think. I LOVE wearing the brown anklets with socks. I have been wearing them everywhere lol. It's like wearing house slippers but way more durable, just as comfy. I added an edit for more clarification.
