T-shirt doily




Been crocheting a doily out of an old t-shirt this very rainy bank holiday monday. I guess I can use it as a trivet when I am done with it.

I like the smooth result, and that's very regular :)

What can I say, I am quite a regular guy. :)

I've never seen anyone crochet so neatly from scraps. Grattis!

p.s. Your succulent is lovely. x

Lovely result :)
I would like to test this kind of crocheting for making a little carpet but it's not so easily to do it with a big crochet.

regular and tightly crochet, for me the two keys for good looking and lasting results :)

Tack Jessica. I am also pleased with my succulent succulent. Babies keep popping up and I am not sure what to do with them - replant them or let them be?

Christelle it is quick to crochet with a big hook but it does require you have got strong hands. I was thinking that it would become a little mat in the beginning but have run out of t-shirt so a trivet it is. :l

Séverine as always I agree with you. :)

The idea is so cute... (the parallel with the plant !)

this is a great idea to reuse and old t-shirt, Theo! I think I'm going to try ity!

Theo said...

Pascale glad that you highlighted the relevance of the succulent. Your mind works like mine.

Ameskeria I think you can buy t-shirt material wool in the shops but it is a lot cheaper to just cut up an old one. This was my former gym t-shirt. Yes, I did wash it before I cut it up. :)
