I moved from a flat to a house and, at last, had a washing line. I had plenty of pegs of but something important was missing - a Peg Bag to keep them in. Something interesting and preferably waterproof. I also had a shameful amount of used bin liners and plastic bags in the corner of my new kitchen. can see where I'm going .... recycled carrier bags made from what is known in craft circles as 'plarn' (plastic yarn)! Cut up and crocheted, in this case, in fur stitch - looks just like grass - and decorated with a couple of little flowers and a butterfly. Turned out rather kitsch, in fact perfect for plastic! BASIC SKILLS NECESSARY A basic knowledge of crochet - straight and 'in the round'. Links to Instructions are given for specialised stitches and symbol diagrams are provided GAUGE Approx 6sts to 5cm(2"), 6 rows to 5cm(2").

There's more to handmade than granny squares. A slighlty different approach from a fashion/product design perspective. Using the textile element with practical and simple designs solutions to provide you with the info to make cool stuff that you will use. I'm a trained designer pattern maker. I've been making stuff for as long as I can remember. I've worked for many large UK fashion retailers but had to give up my job to have a family, so now I do it for myself... and share it with you.
