black crochet pop tab belt and pop tab bracelet

Made some new additions to my shop. I redone the my pop tab belt. This time i made it with nylon thread. Much stronger and durable then the cotton yarn i was using the first time. Also i changed the buckle to a two tongue buckle, because it works better with the belt holes. I am also in the process of making a blue an white version of this belt.

Also made a simple pop tab bracelet in 2 sizes 8 1/4 inches and 7 1/4 inches

pop tab baskets

I have been busy making more baskets and rephotographing them so they look more attractive. I have glad i took the time to do that. I like the photographs of them much more. I used cloth flower petals as props. The green one is going to be my xmas version, just because it is green ;)

I have so many ideas on what i want to make with pop tabs lately, that i started a idea journal. I basically have written done what it is, how it looks and what i a am going to need to make it. I can use it later on to work the ideas out.

pull tab belt

Finally finished the pull tab belt today. It is crocheted from 208 pull tabs. I used dark blue cotton yarn. It is 39 inches long and 1.7 inches width. I also am planning to make a "large" version of this on, that will be 43 inches. I shot some pictures of it and listed it on etsy.
My next project is a crocheted pull tab bracelet. I already made some test bracelets but did not like the outcome of them.

21-7-2011 Tutorial matching dog collar and bracelet

When surfing the net i found this tutorial
matching dog collar and bracelt

I has very clear pictures and explanation on how to make it. You have to have some basic knowledge of how to do crochet.

Also changed my profile picture to suit my pull tab love for the moment. Still have to change my shop banner of my etsy shop though. It is still showing swarovski crystals.
