My Own T-Shirt Yarn

This morning has been quite productive, as I decided to turn two of my old t-shirts into t-shirt yarn. I have had the notion to do this for a while, and today seems to be the day to fulfil that notion. The t-shirts I used are two small sized men t-shirts from Primark, and have been worn mainly for 'lazy day' purposes for the past few years. Hence I thought they would be most suitable for this crafty experiment, as I don't really have any other old t-shirts big enough. The yarn balls weigh 50g each which isn't really a lot, but I reckon if I do this again I will buy very cheap mens t-shirts in the biggest size that I can purchase. It would mean that I would have a lot more material to work with than I did today, it's a very exciting prospect! 

Now to see what I can make with them, I foresee a black and purple yarny project happening today!

Take care!

  1. Very clever, Iove this idea. Can't wait to see what you do with it.

  2. I'm looking forward to seeing what you do with this :)

  3. I am going to look out some tshirts to do this with!

  4. Oh i hope you are going to buy 2nd hand tshirts and not rip up new ones. LOL I have a friend that only crochet's with used materials. She is always ripping up old sheets and making floor rugs or baskets. She tends to turn the old t-shirts into smaller clothing for little ones. Very clever indeed. What are you planning to make?

  5. I've been wanting to do this for a while too. I look forward to seeing what you make. :)

  6. I'll be interested to see what you make w/them!

  7. This is a very well made shirt for the price they are a little smaller than most other t-shirts of the same size but they do not shrink. I would recommended champion t shirts
