Dress


I started the crocheted top of this sundress at Open Relping and finished it the next day. Another "recycle" project since the yarn had been purchased for something else and the ribbon and fabric were left-overs as well.

Reduce, Reuse, Recycle

About a month ago a few of my Algebra students, girls all, showed up in class with these little crocheted wreaths hanging from their belts. It turns out that one of my colleagues had crocheted a bunch of these and the girls thought they were cute. I thought they would be a great project for a girls' crochet club (which I may someday start as a teacher-advisor), especially since the ring that is used for the base is cut from the plastic rings that a six-pack of soda comes in. A cool way to teach kids to turn garbage into art.
