Crafty Friday 8/27 - T-Shirt Yarn

Happy Friday!! I have no idea why I'm in such a good mood, but I have felt inspired this week. I've done so many crafty things, but today I'm going to share with you one of the coolest recycled crafts ever!


Let me introduce you to T-Shirt Yarn. What is T-Shirt yarn you ask? Well, it's exactly what it sounds like. It's yarn made from old t-shirts. It's fun to knit or crochet with, but you can also use it like string and tie things or anything else your imagination can come up with.

Here's a cool video that shows you how to make it:


So what have you been up to this week?

    I love that t-shirt idea. I'm not at all crafty, but we have tons of worn out t-shirts, so I'm going to have to give it a try.
