This is my first challenge entry I am so excited to be particpating. I made this hat from a pair of old jeans, I cut them up into strips and crocheted it. http://i9.photobucket.com/albums/a66/craftylady2/21aug2005037.jpg

 It's pretty fragile because I cut some of the strips to thin,, but here is the finished product, if you can't tell there is a pom pom on top too!

That must have been a lot of work.  It looks cute...and kind of like a muffin.   Wink

That's cool, I've been wanting to knit a purse with cut up jeans for a while. Do you think it would be hard to line it?

Hee hee-- I know how you feel! I posted my entry yesterday, and I kept checking every 5 minutes, all pouty because people were VIEWING but not posting...don't be sad! Think of how often (if you are like me, at least) you look at all the new projects, and say to yourself "Wow! That looks great!" but how rarely you probably actually post a reply. Luckily for me, a side discussion of the word "pram" got going in my project topic, so now I feel way better when I look at the "replies". Okay, I know, that's absurd, but true...it still makes me happy!

Anyway, on to the praise: Your hat is super cute, especially on! Don't fear too much about the fragile fabric strips. Some of mine were popping apart, and I would just tie a new knot. The texture of the bag has just gotten more interesting and unique as I pull two broken ends together and tie a new knot.

Great job!

Ha! That's pretty funny, I was doing the same thing when I posted my little string mittens yesterday, since it was my first ever picture post... and in fact, ludo, I looked at your bag and thought, "wow, that's groovy", but didn't post, just like you described.

And chattykathi, I think your hat is v. fun! It does look like a muffin- or maybe a lovely yummy soft blue cupcake. mmm....
