One of my best friends came to stay with us over the weekend and she showed up with a fun little craft project for us to do together. She showed me how to make t-shirt yarn and then how to finger weave a necklace! It was very simple and the possibilities of what you can do with the t-shirt yarn is endless. I can’t wait to think up more t-shirt yarn projects.
First things first. You need be a little bit picky about what kind of t-shirt you choose to cut up to make your yarn. You want to make sure that your t-shirt DOESN’T have a seam up the sides (running from the armpit to the bottom of the shirt). You also want to avoid having a printed logo/picture on your shirt. Both of these will leave your yarn lumpy and uneven.
Now that you have picked out a suitable t-shirt for your yarn, lay it flat and cut off the bottom seam and the top portion, right under the armpits. Discard the top and bottom portions. You will not use these.
