One of my goals has been to return to crafting. I also wanted to combine this with frugality and re-purposing of already used items or something about to be discarded. Like clothing, sometimes clothes are faded, have "pilling" or are stained and they are not as usable as you might need them to be. But the fabric content is too good to simply cut up into rags.
Tee shirts hit the spot for now. I asked the family to go through their closets and only give what would of been cast away or cut into rags. I made "yarn" and learned a lot in the process.
Smooth out the tee shirt (or in this case a tee shirt night gown) and cut it in two pieces. You will make the first cut just below the sleeve. At this point you have 2 pieces from the tee shirt.
The upper part of the tee shirt that includes the sleeves, this can be cut into rags. For the "yarn" you will use the bottom part of the shirt that is a tube of material. Lay it flat and cut off the bottom hem section. Then begin cutting into 3/4 inch strips as show below.
