Recycle Tutorial – Making Of T-Shirt Yarn
Recycle TutorialTools & Materials: 1. T-shirts (those without side-seam) 2. A pair of sharp scissors Place the T-shirt flat on the floor or working table. We only need the bottom-halve portion of the T-shirt. Cut horizontally from sleeve to sleeve as shown above. Fold the T-shirt from side to side, leaving an inch allowance as shown. Cut into strips as shown, remember not to cut the 1 inch allowance. Finish cutting the T-shirt from top to bottom evenly. Unfold the 1 inch allowance and it will look as shown below. The next process is to make a slant cut from strip 1 to strip 2, strip 2 to strip 3 and so on in order to create a continuous strip for the whole T-shirt. I purposely leave the first strip uncut until I have finished all. Now, I have a loooooooong strip of continuous T-shirt yarn waiting for the next process. Next is to turn the strip into a tubular yarn. See, the strip will curl and form a tubular shape after the tug. I have finished making the drawstring bag as shown above.
