Got The Coffee Covered

 A plea from my lovely sister-in-law to teach her to crochet got me searching for my hooks where I found a project I started last year. Anyway, between me guiding her through a few stitches which I might add, she grasped brilliantly, I finished off my pot cover. 

What do you think, I originally made it to fit a baked bean tin, my husband thought I'd gone quite mad when I placed it over a full tin to try it for size and told him I was going to do the same for the tinned spaghetti lol!  Anyway, I remembered I'd thrown a coffee tin earlier and although a little narrower it still fits fine.

I have no pattern to share, it was out of my head though I have seen similar designs for the flower here.

I'm using my creation for the following challenges:-
Inspire Me Friday 62, Anything goes,
MAWTT, Anything but a card,
Creatalicious 34, Top line Bingo,
RRR49, Flowers and ribbon,
Recycle,Repurpose,Re invent,Recycle,metal,anything goes.

Thanks for stopping by,
Have a good week,

Hi Julie

Wow, this looks beautiful!! I have always wanted to learn to crochet.

Unfortunately, as no paper was used to create this project it is not a valid entry in the Make It Monday linky party.

Julie, Our husbands always think we're strange when we do something like this, but oh how very inventive you are and such a great way to recycle tin cans. This is a great project. Thank you for sharing this with us on Recycle, Re-Purpose & Re-Invent.
