Recycle Tutorial – Making Of T-Shirt Yarn

Recycle Tutorial – Making Of T-Shirt Yarn
Another tutorial to help save our Mother Earth by turning unwanted items into something useful. This is the yarn ball I made out of an old T-shirt which I have been wearing for 10 years day-in day-out, wash-in wash-out. It finally broke down and tore at the collar and sleeves. Waste not, want not, I decided to recycle it. I have finished making the drawstring bag as shown above. Please click here to have a look and you can download the simple pattern I created. {CLICK HERE to get the Recycle Tutorial – Making Of T-Shirt Yarn.} Pages: 1 2 Print / Download PDF

Free Pattern – Crochet Drawstring Bag I am so glad that my blog’s migration is finally over, phew!!! After numerous sleepless nights fighting against broken links, fine tune the layout (still doing though), adding plugins, widgets, blah blah blah…. I am back to posting again, YAY!!! DIY Fringe Scarf Everyone needs a go-to fringe scarf in their fashion repertoire. Here’s an easy way to make your own. What You Will Need: -Old T-Shirt -Good Scissors knot trivet last month i bought lauren a set of “the family creative workshop” books for her birthday. we’ve been having a blast learning all sorts of new things as we make our way through the incredible variety of projects collected in the volumes. one section we were particularly excited to explore was all about knots, which we’ve long admired both for their usefulness and their beauty. this project is based on a “carrick bend” and is great for creating trivets and placemats, but you could just as easily hang it on your wall to be admired for its decorative charm. have fun!derek & lauren

Crochet T-shirt Rug I’ve seen a lot of crocheted and woven and braided rugs out on the internet; it was even one of the first things I pinned to Pinterest, but I never got around to trying one of my own until now. I always thought it was going to be difficult, but actually, it’s really quite easy, and no fancy instructions needed! Here’s how I made my own crochet rug from repurposed t-shirts! Step 1.

Edge stitches (selvedges) Soooo… you want to be a better knitter? Probably one of the single biggest wholesale improvements you can make to your knitting is: use edge stitches . Unfortunately, this is one of those knitting things that sometimes I hear complaints about: that no one explicitly spells out this for you in a knitting pattern — you’re supposed to somehow just "know" about them, and how to do them. Well, if you really want to be a better knitter, you’ll educate yourself! Read on, sister!
