recycled crochet

The other day I crocheted this little bowl using an old shirt of my sons. He had insisted it be cut in strips, which his dad did for me a few years ago now, but I've only just now gotten around to crocheting it up.

Its a fun way to reuse old clothing and it always reminds me of my mother's story of how, as she and her sister grew up, they cut their old clothes into strips, sewed them together and crocheted them into rugs. I think they each had nine or ten by the time they married.

Hard not to think of that six or seven year old boy each time I look at this.
