even more subversive

in my previous post, i described the dismantling and possible repurposing of our electric blanket

starting with the wire for the base, i kept going until i ran out

next, i crocheted some of the stitched blanket edging which was cut off to access the wire

i let the loops and ends hang freely outside the edges

the cloth tapes used to tie the electric blanket (plus some more from my stash) add variety and texture

i also chained a long piece of wire that was left at the end of one row and another on the rim

possible name – connected

[size – 8.5 inches diameter, or 21.5 cm]

i’ve now started cutting the blanket fabric into long strips and crocheting them … more soon!

  1. Love, love, love this! I’ve been thinking I would like to crochet a vessel. Had thought about using string. Love the recycled idea and the finished product too. Hmm, now what can I find…..

    • Thanks so much for your lovely comment – you’ve made my day! It’s fun using unexpected materials (no rules, and what happens, happens). Look forward to seeing what you come up with! =D
