Crafty Friday 9/3 - T-Shirt Yarn Projects

Last week I showed you how to make T-shirt yarn. If you missed this fun recycled craft you can see it here.

T-shirt yarn is really fun and you get to feel good about making it since you are recycling. In fact, it's kind of addicting turning these T-shirts into yarn. I've been stalking my family looking for old shirts. I think I might be annoying them. Hehe. :o)

Now, what can you do with T-shirt yarn? I will admit I was kind of stumped with this questions so I did what every normal person does.....I Googled it!

Here are some of the cool projects I found. I haven't made any of these myself, but I found them at least worthy of looking at twice and thinking about making.

Over at Craft Passion I found this cute crocheted bag:

At Creative Jewish Mom I found the cutest place mats that are woven:

This little crocheted trivet was at All Free Crochet:

And over at Don't Get Much Better Than This I found a knitted rug:
