Double Craftiness

July 13, 2008 at 11:09 am 3 comments

Here’s a couple of projects from that seventies series of craft books, Encyclopedia of Crafts, to spark your creative drives. A purse that looks like a house (instructions) and slippers made by crocheting recycled fabric (instructions).

I can think of so many ways to personalize that purse, add critters, different flowers, crocheted little squares for shingles instead of the raffia. On and on.

The slippers crocheted from recycled fabrics makes me think of fabric choices like old flannel pajamas, sweatshirts, t-shirts. Just imagine how those textures would feel on your feet. Mmmm. Must start ripping up old t-shirts….

Enjoy.
