T-shirt yarn

On Saturday I had a sudden urge to make some t-shirt yarn (as you do). I grabbed some of hubby’s old shirts and looked online for a tutorial, as I didn’t really know how to proceed. There’s lots of tutorials out there, I found this one from Dyani at Little Deer Creations very helpful. Being a quilter, I used a rotary cutter instead of scissors, and I had three balls of yarn before hubby discovered that his t-shirts had gone :-).

I didn’t really have a plan for the yarn, but after some googling I found a gorgeous braided rug on the Sewing For Life blog. Cathy did a Braid-A-Long in 2012 and following her instructions I started the rug in the photo above. Loving the process so far, can’t wait to get on with it! To be continued…

Take care,
Linda
