Nuperellepose

Jeg trengte en ny vekse til å ha nuperelleting i, en som var stor nok til å inneholde fire Häkelgarnnøster. Ingen av de ordinære veksene jeg har passet, så jeg fant ut jeg skulle lage en og samtidig resirkulere en gammel vinterjakke som egentlig ikke var utslitt, bare feil (ikke hette) og hvor foret hadde løsnet flere plasser. Etter å ha testet med et papirkvadrat fant ut hva jeg skulle gjøre. Jeg klipte ut et kvadrat i ryggen på jakken, brettet og sydde sammen i origamistil.


Siden stoffet var glatt og litt uhåndterlig, ble ikke resultatet helt perfekt, men det ble en pose med plass til fire nøster og med smålommer til skytler ol. Tror jeg skal utforske dette konseptet mer...




English summary
I was in need of a new tatting bag, big enough to hold four balls of Häkelgarn. None of my ordinary bags was suitable, so I decided to make on of an old winter coat. I cut a square from the back and made a bag the "origami-style".

The result was not perfect as cutting a square from the back of a coat was not easy, and the fabric was of the slippery kind. But, the bag holds four balls of Häkelgarn and have small pockets for shuttles.

That is probably the coolest tatting bag I have seen! Well done! :)

Who cares if it's from the back of an old coat? That is very resourceful!
