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!

Hi Lady_41701 Smiley yes, the fabric was already in strips for me Smiley I did cut a few down that were too wide so that they were manageable and lasted a bit longer Smiley I believe I used a K or an N hook. I'm certain if you need an oval rug or something as well that those scraps would do well to make one Cheesy My husband loves the oval rag rugs as his grandmother used to have in her log cabin house Smiley so cozy and cute! Smiley so there is one to be made in my future ;0)

Best of luck with your project(s) Smiley would love to see anything that comes to fruition Wink Cheesy

What a great idea!
I bet you had a lot of fun playing around with different combinations,
I love how they came out and thanks for the pattern :0)

Thanks so much sukigirl74 Cheesy

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?

momcuellar do you mean the ivory topped one with ribbon threaded throughout?? Or the ruffled lip one??

It's the third one down, the cream yarn topped one.  Sorry I didn't answer faster.  Sometimes I can be sooo slow!!

Yep, I'm pretty much in love with that third one.  I admire the way you played with textures.

haha - NOW who is the slow one Wink it's been over week for me to get my fanny back here! Cheesy Yes, I said fanny, I'm so old school;) lol

okay- so the star... how to explain... once you have the height pretty much where you want it, the final row you will sc 3 into every other stitch. Once you've gone around the top once then you will thread the ribbon or yarn through each one you sc3 into all the way around. There you go !:) Please feel free to ask anymore questions - I will (eventually Wink lol ) get back here Smiley.

Yep, I'm pretty much in love with that third one.  I admire the way you played with textures.

thank you Smiley I recently made another one with dark orange top and purple (that pops!!) threaded through the top. Smiley I'll have to post pics of it soon.

Thank you ladies for taking the time to comment and inquire! I appreciate it Smiley

All the best,
