i've always wanted to try my hand at one of these projects, and i finally got around to it!
it's a chainmail set up, but i crochet them all together instead of using jump rings






 Grin thanks for looking

Ahhh!! I love this! You did such a good job  Grin
I make and sell pop tab bracelets. I'm kinda obsessed with those metal things. You should see how much I've gotten my hands on. Lol.
I would love to try this sometime. I love how you paired it over leggings. Yay!
I've seen bags, clutches, skirts and belts made out of these and I want to try them all. Have you made anything else?

i actually have not made anything else, this was my first project with pop tabs, it was actually really fun, though time consuming, it took me about an hour per row and 22 rows. i definetly think you should try something like it   Cheesy

Omg, first I was wondering 'pop tab - what kind of fabric is that?', but it is from soda cans! It looks so great! Smiley

Great job!  I never would have guessed that they were pop tabs!

Wow, this is amazing! I love it! At first glance, I would have thought it was a metallic fabric.

What an amazing skirt! You did a seriously nice job. Is it okay if I ask how you crocheted pop tabs together?

yeah, it was actually similar to a chainmaile pattern, overlapping the tabs in groups of four, two back end, and two front ones, but you use the poptabs instead, and instead of looping the tabs with wire, you single stich twice in each group of four, and go across in rows.

Oh! I see now. Thank you so much! I still can't get over how cute your skirt is.

I would think this would be hella uncomfortable. Are you able to move around in it/ sit down while wearing it?
