Crochet + upcycling!

If, like us, you’re a bit of a greenie or you just like sewing, this one’s for you! This tutorial will show you how to make something from a scrap of fabric and a quick bit of double crochet! We love chopping up old t-shirts and turning them into other things, but are often left with perfectly good bits of fabric and no idea what to do with them. We don’t want to throw them out – and Jill Goldberg in sunny South Africa came up with this clever idea!

The possibilities are endless. With some carefully placed holes (and we’d love to know how you would make yours), you can crochet something fancy or cute or sophisticated or seasonal along the bottom (or top or side …).

Visit Jill’s blog to find out just how quickly you can make this.

  1. Oh hey, that’s so nice, thank you for featuring my neck “thing”. Still don’t know what to call it. Re Grannymar’s comment – I had thought of doing something along the other side of the fabric as well, but never quite got there! Holes made with the Sharp hook or with a needle shouldn’t cause fraying, and t-shirt material is quite hardy anyway. Maybe a fine cotton would fray, though? Not sure, worth experimenting 🙂

    • Right, in that case, I’m going to try it! Someone has asked me for a collar, so I’ll see if that works. Thank you ladies!!!!!!!!!!! And perhaps you should do a “Name my neck thingie” post, Jill lol.
