I was in a quilt shop and they had a great looking mat done in single crochet with quilt fabric. That is all that they told me when I asked. Does anyone know the best way to cut the fabric strips (1 1/2 inches in width) and tie them together? Any patterns or suggestions on how to do it? I know how to do a single crochet but not much else.

Essentially all you do is get a large hook (like N or Q) and you cut (rotery cutter is great) strips. You'll do a slit joining (ok you do this: about 1/2 - 3/4" from the ends you make a slitand you slip the next strip into the hole; remember tieing those jelly bracelets, same idea) then you chain enough to be the width (or height which ever you want) then single crochet each row. That's pretty much it.

:D

If you google plastic bag crochet, it'll give you a hint on cutting continous strips.
