I just started making these, out of discarded clothing--I recycle the material and then crochet it into things.  I like the consistency of them, they have some thickness to them.

This one is the first one I made, now I'm into more colorful ones, I think the colorful ones are nicer looking, but this one is cute too I think--kind of in a baby way... Smiley Thanks for looking!

How cute! Do you just cut clothes into strips?

Looks like it could also be a bucket hat...hehe

This is lovely!  I especially like the pretty blue ruffled edge. Can you share with us your technique for cutting the strips?

I cut one continuous strip about 1/4 of an inch wide, and I cut as I crochet, so I cut maybe 5 feet of strip and then I crochet it, and so on.

I have to say it's kind of fun--on many levels. It's nice to get rid of old stuff in a constructive way, it's fun to try to figure out what the new thing will look like, it's fun to cut, it's fun!

Wonderful!  One continuous strip...I think I could try that. Smiley Your crochet work is very nice! I checked out your Etsy shop.

Really nice! I like the subtlety of the trim shading from blue to white, and the overall look is great.
