Busy Bee

4 Aug

one deconstructed pair of black pants + one old Beatles t-shirt + one microfiber  dish towel =

A new, totally groovy honey bee purse!  SCORE!  I cut the pants and t-shirt into strips & crocheted them into the shape I wanted (all single crochets), then lined the inside of the purse with a microfiber dish towel which, just so you know, makes a terrible dish towel.  I then added a handle (triple crochets with a black ribbon woven through for extra stability), made some attached crochet buttons to close, and… voila!  An upcycled, adorable little purse!  Fun, right?  })i({
