Don't throw away those old T-shirts, give them new meanings. Make your own T-shirt yarn!
The bigger T-shirt the longer yarn, the older the more vintage the yarn will look. If you are using a new T-shirt, no problem. Just make sure you wash the T-shirt (old or new) before making the yarn.
Materials: T-shirt (no seam on the sides only), collar cutter or scissor,
Can you use the T-shirt with seams? Yes, you can. We will show you how to use the T-shirt with seams in the next tutorial.
1. Cut a line directly under the sleeves and cut off the hem on the bottom of the shirt.
We are only going to use the middle part of the t shirt to make the continuous long yarn.
Discard the upper part and the hem.
**Small tip to keep your ball nicely: Use a paper toilet roll, make a small cut on one side, put one end of the yarn into the cut, and then start rolling it into a ball. Or use the cardboard (I usually use the postcard flyer), roll the paper into a tube, tape the loose end for easy storage.
Now it's time to start your new project with your own t-shirt yarn.
How about the upper part of the T-shirt? Don't throw it away, keep it for the small projects. Next time we will share with you how use the T-shirt with seams and how to join the end of T-shirt yarn together :)
