Two of my craft projects

As I promised in a previous post I am showing you two of my last craft projects.Recently I am a lot into recycling T-shirts and turning them into beautiful and
useful objects.Here you can see a little
basket for crayons or whatever your heart desires and a potholder or a coaster for a hot pan.
How do I do it?I cut the T-shirts into strips and then crochet them.It was not unfamiliar to me because
when I was a little girl I remember watching my grandma cutting old clothes into strips and coiling those strips into balls.For rugs.At that time in my grandparents village every family had their own wooden loom and the women weaved their own rugs.I was fascinated watching my grandma weaving.
