Rags to Riches - or Rugs!!

Hi everyone,

You know how sometimes one of your faithful old T-shirts finally gives up the ghost and you really CAN'T wear it any more? It's not good enough to give to the charity shop, but it seems a shame to throw it away??? Well, I have several scraggy old T-shirts like that at the moment, and I've been toying with various ideas I've seen on YouTube for making good use of them.


Here's the first idea I decided to try - you cut around in a spiral, gradually reducing the garment to a continuous narrow length of "yarn" ...



... which I've wound into a ball all ready to crochet into various useful objects ...


.... like pot holders, totes and so on. Another idea I fancy trying is turning T-shirts into RUGS!! Watch this space :o)

Thanks for visiting me to day, see you again soon!

Very thrifty and it would be great fun to stand on your t-shirt purposefully being popped on the floor! LUCK with what you end up doing! Can't wait to see!!!
