I never thought I would see a fantastic way to combine crochet with something as mundane as a bleach bottle. But, here it is! And, doesn’t it look cool – and useful? I can think of a lot of ways to apply this idea. There’s a good tutorial to guide us to make our own. I think this would be a great idea for the pool or beach (punch a few holes in the bottom for drainage), for a small portable toy chest, as a hanging planter, or to carry a crochet project around with you. I know a lot of crocheters are going off to look for a suitable container right this minute! How about a milk jug? Maybe a gallon vinegar bottle.
For smaller hands, say a portable Barbie house or Hot Wheels garage, a 2 liter soda bottle will be perfect. Best idea for this time of year is a free (as in recycled from your trash bin) Easter Basket. Decorate it with stickers or just use a cheery yarn for the handle and clip up some yarn scraps for the ‘grass’. Any more suggestions? I wanna run with this idea!!!
