What to do with this yarn.....?

Question

I'm a total newbie to crochet... I'm getting way ahead of myself thanks to all these awesome crochet projects I keep seeing. I tend to think " oh that should be easy, I can do that". Then I realize I don't know how to read patterns. I'm so impatient and never tried. I got so frustrated trying to read it so I turned to YouTube. I've made a chunky blanket, coasters, beanies, slouchy beanie (which is too tight for my head) fingerless gloves, 60 small granny squares (which I have no idea how to put together) and a bunch of I don't know what they are! ????

Then today I got so excited that I found a king size flat sheet that I didn't need. Or at least I convinced myself I didn't need it just so I can rip it up! ???? Anyway I followed a video and I cut the strips about 1 inch thick. It came out great! Now my question is... What are some of the best things to make with it? I guess I just felt like cutting this sheet up because I have no idea what to do with it now. Lol any suggestions would be great! I'd love to make a basket to put all my crochets stuff in but I'm not sure... Any advice would be appreciated.

Thanks in advance!post-78599-0-66639700-1479352237_thumb.jpeg

You could make a tote or a rug or about anything you would make with ww or chunky yarn.

 

How about placemats or coasters.  Check out some of the things RecycleCindy has made.

This would make an awesome basket, it would hold it's shape well.  1" wide is will be hard to work with.  I think you may be better off cutting the strip in half and working with 1/2" wide 'yarn'.  Plus, this will give you twice the yardage.  If I did my math right, ( king sheet=78"wide x 80"long) you have about 173 yards now.

 

Here is a pattern with tutorial on making baskets with sheets!  It combine sheet strips with yarn.

Here is a squarish basket, it calls for 2 strands of kitchen cotton so the sheet should work (but you'd have to cut it down to get enough yardage)

Thanks ladies! I didn't think about the thickness :(

Thanks Tampa and Granny squares I'm going to check that out. And I think you're right, I'm going to cut the strip in half... More yarn
