I was in a quilt shop and they had a great looking mat done in single crochet with quilt fabric. That is all that they told me when I asked. Does anyone know the best way to cut the fabric strips (1 1/2 inches in width) and tie them together? Any patterns or suggestions on how to do it? I know how to do a single crochet but not much else.
Essentially all you do is get a large hook (like N or Q) and you cut (rotery cutter is great) strips. You'll do a slit joining (ok you do this: about 1/2 - 3/4" from the ends you make a slitand you slip the next strip into the hole; remember tieing those jelly bracelets, same idea) then you chain enough to be the width (or height which ever you want) then single crochet each row. That's pretty much it.
If you google plastic bag crochet, it'll give you a hint on cutting continous strips.
