It's been a while since my daughter and I did any crochet. We're still very much beginners - but like to practise and experiment.
I had this idea I wanted to try out with plastic bottles!
First I cut the bottom part off two empty washed out bottles:
Then I punched holes around the top edge of each one:
Finally - I took one, my daughter took the other, and we crocheted around the top, going through the holes as we went round, then added handles:
Very cute don't you think?
I've filled mine with pens and hung it by my desk:
My elder daughter saw them and thought they would make cute Halloween trick or treat baskets - or perhaps Easter baskets!
They'd also be cute as perhaps treat bags for parties - or Christmas!
We even thought they might make cute little hanging herb planters.
I think I might upcycle all our plastic bottles like this for a while!
What do you think?
What else could you use them for?
