I've been admiring the birds in your avatar, and now to see them full size is a treat. They are beautiful! Smiley

Oh wow. I never thought to ribbon the beer can/soda pop tabs. I have been researching the crochet projects made with those. Yours is a really neat idea. It looks like you made belts, but I wish to make a purse, but I bet I could lace them your way, and then stitch them to the lining on the edges, and tuck in the ribbon flaps to the inside, somehow. Maybe just by adding an additional lining. Very interesting. Thanks  Grin

And...I also researched the widget thing. I never knew those were in there, either. Very interesting, too. I am a wine and vodka kinda' girl, but I will have to see at my local pub if they will save the cans for me. For those import brands we won't mention, but that come with these fun materials for crafting.  Grin Another thanks.


You could make a bag with ring pulls, I have a few different ones now. Or maybe a necklace  or perhaps a Stag's head. In fact there are loads of things to use an old drink can for.

To all past swap partners....If something I made you fell apart in some way, it would be helpful to me if you PMed me and told me about it.  Sometimes, I try new things, and if they fail, it helps me to know

Thank you. I have thousands of ring pulls to use up as a lovely chap at the carving club collects them for me. His daughter is a student and she asks her friends to keep them all.

Thank you... that is a lovely thing to say.  I am always adding new stuff to my blog and will happily type up instructions for anyone who is interested in using recycled stuff to craft with. Lets all do our bit to keep it out of the landfill if we can.
