Materials you need at home:
- Phil Coton 3 by Phildar
- 2 mm crochet hook
- Plastic Bottles Rings
This bottle-holder is made with round motifs crocheted on plastic bottles rings that you can find around the necks of most of water bottles but other rings can be used. Upcycling permits to creatively reuse trash, rubbish, things we throw away to reduce waste. The floral motif (the round one or the flower itself) can be used for other projects (jewelry, coasters, pot holders...) Yarn: Phil Coton 3 by Phildar (100% Cotton, 50 gr/121 m) but any other equivalent can be used. Used colors: Framboise and Violet. Used hook size: 2 mm. Suitable for most of the bottles. The height can be changed.
This is not a real item but an instant download digital pattern (tutorial) containing step by step (round by round) instructions explaining how to create this bottle-holder. This pattern is my original creation: it was imagined and created by me.
The idea of « Nature aux fils » came from a distant childhood memory of a 3D flower knitted, I think, on a skirt's strap by my talented grandma for me. Inspired by nature, I want my crochet flowers and other creations as realistic as possible but I don't want to copy nature and reproduce the whole flowers because I know that I'll never do better, so I introduce them into my pieces of jewellery.
The patterns that I publish here are unique and were designed by me with great care and passion. Today I want to share my secrets with you. My technique is simple but new and original, it permits you to obtain a needed shape rather easily. I also use some unusual materials that everyone can have at home but doesn't think to use.
Welcome to my universe!
