21  Archive of Past Craftster Challenge Entries / CHALLENGE 5 ENTRIES / Re: Grocery Bag Rain Coat and Umbrella on: August 23, 2005 10:00:20 AM
It took me about a month and a half maybe...the umbrella took me a week and the coat took me a little over a month.  Ther hardest and longest part was shredding the bags.  The umbrella took about a hundred so the coat must have taken almost 300...which is a lot of cutting and tying.

P.S. I love your signature limmerick, my favorite limmerick is:
There once was a woman from Bude
who decided to swim in a lake
a man in a punt
stuck an oar in her ear
and said you can't swim here it's private

This is my first post-- I was sent here by a friend who saw this project and thought I should enter.  I didn't even know this existed....and I'm not really sure how everything works...but here goes.

Ok.  This was made by shredding up grocery bags and knitting them.  It was originally sketched in response to G.W. suggesting that shopping would save the economy.  Shopping won't save the economy...and this project is a metaphor for that-- neither this umbrella nor this rain coat will keep you dry.









Edited to add:
Thanks for all the feed back.  In response to some requests, here are some pictures that show a little more detail.  Also, it's not me in the coat, I took the pictures.  My best friend is modelling.  It is quite a warm piece, but it's scratchy as heck.  I think that covers everything.
