I made this for the Frugal Living swap, I just crocheted around the pop-tabs until it looked flower like, it took a few times ripping back before I was happy. I used up some of my thread scraps, and tied it to a market bag I crocheted from yarn leftovers, I hope the recipient likes it, it was definitely frugal.

I've heard it both ways.

I'm looking to swap some knit &/or crocheted crafts for handmade CP/HP soap.

I love pop tab crochet, but we rarely drink pop, so I never have any tabs!  This is great and I love the color..

Thank you for the kind words, we're not big soda drinkers either, but my girls recently cleaned up a little ally-way in our neighborhood so I got most of the tabs from the cans they picked up ( I did wash them).

That is extremely clever, and I love the colors too! I bet the pop tabs really make the flower keep its shape nicely. Fabulous frugal crafting idea. Smiley
