Here's a simple idea on how to recycle old clothes.
You can easily make a crochet basket for your household organizational needs, at the same time clear up the mounting clothes that have been filling up the closet.
Old pajamas are good fabric to work on, although it's a bit hard to get hold of in our household as they are so well loved by some...but I did managed ;P
Cut fabric into long thin strips
Knot them strip by strip, and form a fabric ball.
Now, you're ready to start crocheting. I use a size 6.5 MM hook. Chain 6 and join them together to form a ring. Then just slip stitch all the way to your desired size. Increasing slip stitches as you go.
When you want to shape it upward, simply decrease the number of your slip stitching. (Decrease the number of your slip stitch to make it smaller and increase the number of slip stitches to enlarge it.)
You can put another coloured fabric strips to make a design like this.
Now, I'm off to make some more rectangular basket to hold and store my kitchen towels in. Hope you'll enjoy doing this quick and simple project for yourself too :) Have fun!
