From tea to bag holder

i needed something to keep my bags under control they seemed to be mating, id recently taken part in a tea swap and got some beautiful tea bag envelopes that i wanted to keep so i fused them between to sheets of plastic) you know the stuff that you get inside cereal boxes? Then i sewed it into a cylinder shape and crocheted top and bottom decreasing on rows to keep the bags inside and added a crochet handle ..bobs your aunty! i had a jumper that somehow got shrunk in the wash but i loved the colour and didnt want to throw it away but i was way too small so i cut the arms off and made leg warmers the ribbed cuff was perfect fit for my ankles and the wider top meant they stayed put, then i cut up the middle of the jumper and added a ribbon tie either side, making it into a cap sleeve cardi Some old beer bottles i glued some scrunched up felt into a ball inside them and made 2 mini pin cushions and ive saved all all my 1-2 metre long scraps of yarn over the year made crochet circles (yoyos), added some glitter 2 pretty gold bottle caps and some nice coloured buttons and plastic bottle caps a bow and slotted them onto an old wire coat hanger and volia a christmas wreath and you know when you get a plastic bottle such as water and you unscrew the lid? and your left with a little plastic ring left around the neck of the bottle..well who needs curtain rings? these are fab for crocheting around to make mini wreaths just 2 rows of dcs around a chain for a little hanging loop and done!..also christmas cards just punch holes and dc around , and stars made out of plarn (mine was asda bags..just need to add some glitter and good to go!)
