How cool would it be to create purses, jewelry and accessories with those cute little pop tabs and then give them to your friends and family as one of a kind gifts? Trust me, you become the favorite aunt, uncle, sister, daughter and friend when you create beautiful treasures from these little fun pieces of metal trash.

Pop tab crochet is a fun and unique form of crochet. It is becoming increasingly popular, especially as the eco-chic movement of recycling and up cycling continues to grow. This guide will teach you the beginning basics of pop tab crochet. While helpful to already have the skills of basic crochet, it is not necessary in order to learn quickly how to pop tab crochet.

The guide includes all the basic elements of learning to crochet pop tabs together for beautiful effects. The guide is over 50 pages long and filled with large colorful photos showing the details of crocheting pop tabs to create that sparkling, flowing pop tab "fabric" effect. It is written in simple, easy to follow language to get you up and running quickly, making a wide variety of fun and beautiful pop tab projects from purses to necklaces to belts.

In addition, I've included the pattern for "How to Make Pop Tab Friendship Bracelets" to give you a fun and easy first project to try out your pop tab crocheting skills!

This guide makes a great companion to "How to Crochet Pop Tab Flowers" found in my shop at

as well as "Pop Tab Hobo Purse Pattern" tutorial

and "The Rita Pop Tab Purse Pattern" tutorial

and "How to Crochet a Pop Tab Purse Handle"
