Thanks to Sibilla Graphics a few months ago I stumbled upon this brilliant tutorial. It shows how to make yarn from old t-shirts. And yes, you can actually knit that yarn!!!
I personally prefer to use it to create necklaces (or infinity scarves). It' s anything but original - actually it's the last trend in the up-cycling/DIY/handmade world. I'd like to share it though, because it's easy, the results are great, and the possibilities too.
I made these two above during the weekend. I know they may look shabby, but once worn, they are quite cool. The next level? One should sew beads, fabric flowers, or - why not? - puppets on it!
