Have you got a few old T-shirts that are too ratty to donate to charity?
Here’s a fun, eco-friendly way to spend a lazy Sunday “crafternoon”.
Convert said T-shirts into T-shirt yarn. Here’s how:
When you come to the top (under the armholes), cut right across. Discard the top bit – they make excellent rags for mopping up kitchen spills!
Open out the T-shirt so that the UNCUT uncut side seam is facing you.
Cut on the diagonal, going up to the next level.
Keep cutting upwards from every slit below the seam to every corresponding slit above the seam until you get to the end.
See images to the left to get a better idea.
I crocheted this seat cover for an old wooden stool we have.
I’ve also made a T-shirt yarn “necklace” and have seen some amazing crocheted rugs, woven bathmats, bowls and baskets, pom poms…
So tell me, are you a ‘crafty’ sort of person?
What hobbies do you like dabbling in?
And what do you do with your old T-shirts?
