Love this idea.  I love the way the circles are "ridgy". Very crafty and a great way to recycle.

Love this, I teach trash to treasure classes and this is a wonderful idea. I am always looking for great ideas for recycling that don't look cheap and silly. This is a great way to keep tabs out of the landfill and a wonderful way to use your scrap material.
How did you attach the caps to one another. Are they sewn together?
It really is lovely. Thanks to you and a hearty thanks to your bloke for working so hard towards the good of crafting. Smiley

Much Peace,
Tero

Yes, they're sewn at the bases to secure them. Sounds like it would be great for your class as it's a quick and easy project. If you would like me to make up a photo tutorial that's a bit clearer just let me know! Smiley

Aah! That's adorable!!  Kiss I have tons of bottlecaps I had no idea what I was going to do with, and now I know what I'm going to do with them. You're awesome. Cheesy
PS: I would love to see the tut, too, by the way! :]

Very cute! I have lots of scraps of fabric I could use for that, but I don't have any bottlecaps... I would love to see the tutorial anyway!

Thanks! You can always ask your local bar for some, they don't normally recycle them, just throw them out.

Okay, some steps...

1. cut your fabric to approx 5/6cm squares. This is 6...


2. stitch a circle around the square. It doesn't have to be especially neat.


3. Pull the thread to gather the fabric together into the centre of the bottlecap.


4. Stitch the loose ends down & attach at the bottom with a few sitches to the next bottlecap.


5. Attach in the same way to the next, securing to the bottom of both bottlecaps.


6. This way there should be no stitches visible from the top.


Hope that's helpful! Smiley

How clever! Thank you for the tutorial. I'll have to start asking people to save bottle caps...
