I hope I posted this in the right place, I suppose this could also be in house decor?? Please let me know if this should be moved! Thank you...

A few months ago someone on Freecycle posted a tub of fabric scraps and I jumped on it! at the time, the lady responded saying someone else had already spoken for the tub and if they didn't show up, it would be mine. I assumed that was that, until I heard back from the lady the next day who posted the tub of scraps and said the person was a no show. Well, I went ahead and picked it up, was elated and sort of overwhelmed once she gave the tub to me!

I brought it home, sorted through it all to see just what I had to work with. Some of the scraps were far too small to be sewing with so I wrapped the tiny strips into balls and have recently been working through the balls. Here are a few of the pieces so far that have transpired from the strips Smiley













Hope you like them! Smiley  C &  C are always welcome!

Also - here is a pattern to make a basket basket and you can add your own personal touches Smiley

Each line indicates a row:

- in a magic ring crochet 6 (6)
- in each sc, sc2 repeat to end (12)
- sc 1, sc2 in next (inc) repeat to end (18)
- sc 2, sc2 in next (inc) repeat to end (24)
- sc 3, sc2 in next (inc) repeat to end (30)

♦ Depending on how big you want the bowl - continue adding 1 stitch to the sc stitches that are not part of the inc until you have the width you want the bowl to be.

♦ From there, work around the sc's until you get to the height you desire. 

♦ Have fun with this! Smiley the possibilities are endless! Smiley

thank you for looking Smiley always Smiley

I love how you started with a fabric base but finished with a yarn top. What a neat idea!

thank you craftADDchick! Cheesy I think it finishes them off softly - the fabric at the top can get raggedy. Glad you like it too! Smiley

You guys all rock! Smiley Thank you for the comments! Cheesy

I love the second, third and fifth baskets - their colour combinations are beautiful! Well, you know they all are, but those especially. Cheesy I suppose the yarn top makes it easier to add a drawstring to it, too. Very cute and thank you for sharing the pattern! Smiley

very creative! Do you cut the fabric into stips and crochet with a large hook? I've only used different weights of yarn but I sew and have tons of fabric scraps on hand. Keep them thinking they will come in handy for something. Maybe you've found a solution for me to clean out my stash!

Love, love, love the bowls.  I'm a bit obsessed right now covering jars with crochet.  Thanks for the inspiration!!  I would like to know how the "star" shaped one was made.  Any hints?
