I used to be a shirt ......

...... now I'm a very lovely trinket bowl - what do you think?

I'm very taken with this bowl - crocheted from recycled shirting with a lovely crocheted motif from a recycled, vintage tablecloth to neaten the centre. It would hold your favourite jewellery, your keys, a small project - perhaps lace crochet, tatting or similar, or if you can't find any practical excuse to have it, just display it for its own sake.

It has taken me a few hours to make, but has been a complete pleasure - not least because I have saved more textiles from landfill to such beautiful effect. It will be listed in one of my shops soon!

(Now listed here)
