    Here are some I also made earlier / / Hope the link works, I keep trying all kinds of ways to stop the tins being sharp! Love and Peace Cath

    I like the idea, but how sharp are the holes in the cans? Do the edges "saw" through the yarn as the bag is used?

    Hi. Thanks. No, the yarn seems fine. I crocheted it pretty tight in the holes, so there's not a lot of movement there. But time will tell, I guess. The worst that can happen so far is the aluminum can get bent if I am not careful with the tote (it can be straightened again, but sometimes this leaves a little crease).

    Agreed Kiteman.
    And nice job Kiteman, your new Instructable is already high in the ratings.
    You're going to beat me. :-(

    Very mean of you.


    There are days to go yet...

    Good Job, so very original.

    This is a cute idea.
