DIY: T-Shirt Yarn

Get your rotary cutters out for some rotary cutting practice! I saw this nifty posting on how to turn an old t-shirt into some unique yarn! I originally saw this on Fuck Yeah Craft!

Tshirt Yarn

You can make approximately 20-30 yards of “yarn” from an old t-shirt with a rotary cutter, quilting ruler, and a self-healing mat. It’s a great way to re-use old t-shirts. Perhaps even re-dye them to suit your needs.

Note: I started saving all my old clothes, linens, etc ever since I started getting interested in sewing. I have a ton of old denim I’m looking to do something with. Perhaps lots of little zippered pouches for Christmas. So save all your old clothes, linens, etc. to recycle them into new things! Especially, great if you’d like to practice some projects just for fun.

Here are some great tutorials on how to make your own t-shirt yarn:
