Star Trek Phone Cozy

Tonight I whipped up a quick crochet phone cozy for my husband's phone.

Size G crochet hook
Red Heart Super Saver yarn in red and black
Black felt

Chain 24 (or however many are needed to fit around your phone)

Join in the round and sc in each chain
Continue in a spiral, 1sc in each sc until cozy is long enough to cover your phone

I changed color a little over halfway down the length of the phone to represent the red shirt and black pants of a Star Trek officer

Fasten off and weave in ends

Cut a piece of black felt in the shape of the Star Trek emblem
I attached mine with hot glue, but I think I will end up sewing it on tomorrow :)

When I gave it to my husband, he burst into laughter and hugged me.  Such joy!

Pop Tab Crochet

I teach an English class twice a week. One of my regular students has a crocheted purse made with pop tabs, and I love it! I want to recreate this purse! I already have a good collection of pop tabs, but I think I may have to collect a whole bunch more if I want to really tackle this project. Tonight I snapped some pictures. Even the strap is pop tabs :)
The crocheted pop tab fabric is amazing. I love the repetitive pattern that the pop tabs create. And I think it looks really classy.
Hmmm. Guess I'll have to start drinking more canned beer. I think I can make that sacrifice :)
