Crochet with fabric tapes

Fabric tapes
Yesterday I made some fabric tapes.
I only cut fabric in 1cm strips width with rotary cutter knife. At the each end I leave 1cm to make long tape.

I made it with some colors and made up these items.

At first, I made these brooches.
Bow brooch with a button
I only folded some colors of tapes together on a piece of thick paper(of the width of bow), made the shape of bow, sewed the center and put a button.

Then I put a pin on the back. Is it too easy... ?

Fabric crochet pot holder
I also hand crocheted this potholder with single crochet.
It's also easy but I didn't crochet recently so I took long time...

Fabric crochet scrunchie
At the last I made this scrunchie.
I hand crocheted the fabric tapes on a looped elastic. But the elastic was too long and I took long time for it too.

But I made them all in one day (* v *)!!!!
Because it rained, I didn't run yesterday and could enjoy making them.

Thank you for advices for me. I enjoy my jogging and my hand craft.
