Learn How to Make Yarn From Old T-Shirts

If you’re anything like me, I need to get rid of a few t-shirts…no, actually a lot of t-shirts! I have so many t-shirts I could open a t-shirt shop! It’s ridiculous, yet I kept hanging onto them. I’m glad I did because now I have the perfect way to recycle them!

After learning that I could make yarn out of t-shirts and actually make some great things out of it, I jumped all in and started cutting t-shirts the way Laura, in the tutorial attached below, does it. She makes everything look so easy. You would think that cutting up t-shirts wouldn’t need instructions, but, believe me, there’s actually an art to it!
