old t-shirt, new life

i crocheted these vessels out of yarn i made from old t-shirts.

i really love their simplicity, irregularity and floppiness, and how the printed part of the shirt shows up wherever it wants, giving you a glimpse of its prior life.  i fantasize about making lots of white ones, in all different shapes and sizes, and dip dyeing them in natural dyes.    …one day….

right now, they’re holding bear parts!
