Well my dear blog reader, already I have failed you. I promised a new post every week and last week I did not post. I have no awesome excuse. I have been riddled with guilt but alas, I just didn’t have anything new to post. Was I not crafting? Well not much. Today I am back however and I apologize for my absence.
A couple of weeks ago my husband cleaned out his T-Shirt drawer. When he does this it’s like Christmas for me. I love love love to cut up t-shirts to make yarn. Something about the thriftiness of it all thrills me. What I end up with is a whole lot of t-shirt yarn and no project. I decided to start with the least pleasing colors and make a rug. Just to get a feel of the yarn and what it will look like when I work it up.
It’s ugly, I know. But it gets me going with other ideas. Want to make your own rag yarn? I was going to make a tutorial but it takes 2 hands to make this stuff and I’m not smart enough to figure out how to take photos at the same time. Why would I repeat what others have done so well anyway? So if you want to make your own t-shirt rag yarn (some people call it tarn…those people are crazy) look at this tutorial by Craft Passion. See how she made a basket at the end? That’s what I’m going to do next with my pretty colors of tarn.
Here are a few more photos to inspire you.
