T-Shirt Necklaces

Pin It

Have you guys heard of T-shirt yarn?  I had never heard of it until a few weeks ago when I saw THIS TUTORIAL on CRAFTGAWKER
Basically, you cut up an old T-shirt into strips and the shirt will roll up when pulled to create a large "yarn".  You can actually knit with the yarn, or simply turn it into necklaces and bracelets like this:

See the ridges where the T-shirt fabric has rolled up?  You can hide uneven cutting by rolling it under.  Perfect for a TV-watching project :) 
Most tutorials recommend a T-shirt with no seams, but I simply gathered the seams at the back of the necklace and wrapped it with a bit of scrap material.  You can make several wrappings along the length of the necklace if you want or add other little notions, but I decided to stick with basic lengths of the material.

I had enough for 3 necklaces and 1 bracelet out of one T-shirt because I cut my strips quite thin.  You can wear just 1, or go all bold and wear a bunch of these at the same time.  Are you dying to cut up any old T-shirts?  Would you like an in-depth tutorial on this or is it old hat to you??

I love t-shirt yarn! I have been making t-shirt snoods for a while now and they are one of my favorite things to wear!

So glad you are starting to use it!

What a great project. I like the way you kept the strips nice and thin, and that green color is simply gorgeous!

It's always a delight to have you share your creativity on "A Little Birdie Told Me..." Tuesday at Rook No. 17. Thanks!
