Crochet box

Some of you may remember the tutorial for the crisp packet coaster I did a while ago (if not it is on the free pattern page if you want to check it out :)
I kept saying to myself I wanted to turn some into a box but never did. Finally about a week ago I got round to it and sewed a few of the coasters I made a while ago into this little pencil pot:

It was sitting in my room and my brother said he really liked him so I said he could have it- it was just my little experiment but now it has a home :-P

I might try making some large versions of the coasters- placement size to make table setting sets and maybe even try making some boxes with lids- I will do some more experimenting!

See you all soon,

Bye xxx


  1. I like it! If you did a hole in the bottom one about the size of a walnut, then turned it upside down it would be an awesome tissue box cover :)

  2. I love this! It's SO COOL! I wish wish wish I could crochet so much! XXX

  3. I first found your blog when researching for my A Level textile project. I found your recycled coaster tutorial and loved it so used it to make a Collar for a dress! I'll try and post a picture for you to see!
