Hippie Hemp Hip Belt (say that 3 times fast!)

IMG_1540Just published my newest pattern on Ravelry!  It’s a super cool, low slung belt made out of upcycled soda pop tabs and hemp jeweler’s cord.  Super easy to make.  All you need to know is how to single crochet and chain stitch. Don’t have 84 pop tabs but you still want to make the belt?  Search the internet! (Ebay) Unemployed people sell them all the time for really cheap.  You’ll be helping someone who is actually trying to be resourceful to make ends meet. Hemp is a great material not only because it moves so great but it’s sturdy.  Buying hemp materials also supports the textile hemp industry which is great for the environment & promotes hemp in the USA.  So you’re really doing your part to save a tree in the future.  And who doesn’t have a little hippie in them?  Ok well a few stuffy people, but the rest of us can always use a trendy, fashionable, recycled accessory!

Pattern is $2.50 USD using Paypal (you can use any debit or credit card without having a Paypal account).
