Raggy crocheted basket

I’ve not yet finished the basket I’m making but I’ve made progress that I’m happy with.

This is made from a long strip of fabric  cut from an old quilt cover and pillow cases. It’s crocheting together nicely though it does require a little more physical strength (it feels like I’m using my whole arms).

I’m thinking I’ll be able to use my basket for balls of yarn that I’m using, rather than a carrier bag.

I love the fact that I’m repurposing something that would have ordinarily been thrown away. In addition to this making something that looks quite nice too. 🙂
