I couldn't find another thread that talked about this, but I have a question about technique - I have these soda cans (well, really they're flavored water - look like this http://www.coca-colaproductfacts.com/content/dam/productfacts/us/productDetails/ProductImages/PDP_DasaniSparklingBerry_12oz.png and this: http://www.dasani.com/img/sparkling-flavors/new/dasani-sparkling-water-tropical-pineapple-12-oz-can.png )

I would like to make a bag out of these - I've seen where other people around the internet have made hats or wallets or whatever - but i'm specifically looking to make a bag that combines the cans with crochet.

What I'm wondering is, has anyone else done something with cans before, and are there any tips for how to do this? I feel like I'm just making the whole thing up as I go along and I don't know if it will actually do what I want it to. Help or photos for inspiration would be appreciated!

Crafting keeps the madness at bay. Or is it the cause?

It can be done - I have seen things like the beer can hats that are crocheted too.


You can probably use a similar technique to make the bag too.  Cut the metal out, blunt/curve/cover the edges so as to prevent cuts, punch holes to crochet through.

I realize that this is an older post but perhaps you could die cut some shapes and then laminate them in the cheap laminating pouches. Punch holes around the edge of the laminated pouch and crochet a bag. I did a similar thing with crisp packets... In fact I may give it a try some time with  cans and see if it works.
